Kipa.co.il links שים שָׁלום to the priestly blessing according to Orach Chayim 127 (2), so whenever there is a possibility for the priestly blessing, שים שלום is said. The trouble there is that there is no priestly blessing to Shabbos mincha and there is a minhag to say שים שלום (and another to say שָׁלום רָב). Kipa.co.il links the שים שלום minhag on ...

When I asked my LOR the rules in these situations he said: The Chazzan starts the Shemoneh Esrei out loud as you mentioned. He says the Kedusha with the Congregation as usual, and he finishes לדור ודור At that point he continues silently by himself (and does not say אתה קדוש) At the end of Kedusha the Congregation takes three steps back and three steps ...

You can always retie the knots but the result won't be the same as Nusach Ashkenaz tefilin. Many years ago I purchased Nusach Ari tefilin, after being told that ktav Ari was accepted by both Ashkenazim (Litaim) and Hassidim. Once I learned hilchot tfilin in more depth I discovered that there were other important differences between Ari and Ashkenazi tefilin....

I have been trying to reconnect to my Gerrer roots. This is what I've discovered. Tefillin: They are standard size, not oversize like Chabad. The parchments are k'sav Ari. The laying of Rabbeinu Tam tefillin is added from marriage. They are wrapped standard nusach Ashkenaz as opposed to nusach S'fard that some other Chassidim wrap or Nusach Chabad. Nusach ...

A late answer, I know, but a different one (and, I must say that I still don't understand some of the claims made in the other answer so this one is as reasonable, but I can't find a source for it). The Birnbaum siddur Hasiddur Hashalem writes (page 310): ארך ימים is repeated so that the number of verses of this psalm reach a total of seventeen, the ...

The Steipler kept his chassidish tefillin but bought Rav Chaim Ashkenaz Tefillin, although the steiplers father was a hornsteipler (chernoybl) chossid, the steipler learnt in navordok, a litvishe yehsiva and married THE litvish'e gadols sister (Chazon Ish's sister). I am pretty sure he continued to wear a gartel (but then again so did the chazon ish, it ...

This says that gebrochts was a private neder. "He did not eat gebrochts but allowed his family to do so. Because of this, his meals were prepared in special keilim separate from the rest of the family’s keilim. In his old age, when it was hard for him to eat matzoh unless it was soaked in water, he was matir neder and ate gebrochts as well. (...

According to http://www.aishdas.org/asp/shalom-rav it is partly based on Nusach Bavel vs Nusach Eretz Yisrael Two variants of Shalom Rav were found in the Cairo Geniza. Given the similarities between Cairo and Israeli nusachos, it is assumed to have been the Nusach Eretz Yisrael in the days of the tannaim and Israeli amora’im. Another indication ...

I have seen some that explain that "בהם" relates to "מדע תורתך", even though "מדע" is singular, it is treated as plural (all the details of "ידיעות תורתך"). I have also seen an explanation that "בהם" is connected to the former "דעת" and "בינה" that are mentioned in the beginning of this beracha. Unfortunately, I do not remember the sources for the above ...

Half an answer. I'm guessing the question arises since both Nusach'es are of Ashkanaz origin. A quick look at what is Nusach Sepharad [source] Nusach Sefard, or Nusach Sepharad, or Nusach Sfard is the name for various forms of the Jewish siddurim, designed to reconcile Ashkenazi customs (Hebrew: מנהג "Custom", pl. minhagim) with the kabbalistic customs ...

There are many differences between Nusach Ashkenaz, the traditional German and Lithuanian nusach, and Nusach Sefard, the Chassidishe nusach. One way they are different is in the way the prayers are ordered. I've included the order of Pesukei D'zimrah for weekdays for both nusachim: נוסח אשכנז פסוקי דזמרה לחול תהילים ל, קדיש יתום, הריני מזמן...בשם כל ישראל, ...
