The same people that went to shul at night on Shabbos went at night on Yom Tov. There are various reasons why there was no takana to say birchas me'ein sheva on Yom Tov. According to the Tur/Shulchan Orach in O'Ch 487, we don't say me'ein sheva on Pesach because it is Leil Shimurim, a protected night, so we don't need to worry about the dangers in siman ...


I found in Siddur Kol Tefilos Hashana - Philadelphia 1905 - that it is called Shir Hakavod since it speaks about the honor of the creator - Hashem.


Actually, tipcha is a bigger break than tevir, and even bigger than revii (even though many people don't read it that way). The side of the Tikkun Simanim points out places where it makes a difference to the meaning. One major case is in Reeh 12:2. A more recent place, where it's simpler to see the meaning although I don't think the Simanim says anything ...


I found this: משנה. מי שהיה עבד או אשה או קטן מקרין אותו – עונה אחריהן מה שהן אומרין, ותבא לו מאירה. אם היה גדול מקרא אותו – עונה אחריו הללויה, מקום שנהגו לכפול – יכפול, לפשוט – יפשוט, לברך – יברך, הכל כמנהג המדינה. One who has a slave, a woman, or a minor read [the Hallel] to him, he must repeat after them what they say, and a curse be ...


I had a similar question recently as we had a brit milah in shul and the grandfather distributed a prayer for personal requests to be said at the time of the brit. I was surprised this was allowed and looked it up afterwards. Turns out, in a nutshell, that, beyond the traditional nusach, requests for spiritual matters are allowed while requests for material ...


The accepted practice in chabad is not to add tefilos during davening that were not included in the siddur by the Alter Rebbe. That being said without knowing more about the specific prayer there wouldn't be a reason necessary that one could not recite it after davening.


R Eliezer Melamed writes here regarding dirt (early 3, end of 4, beginning of 5) This should also be apparent in his dress; one’s clothes should be respectable, fitting for one who stands before the King. If one is wearing disgraceful clothes, normally not worn on the street, such as dirty work clothes or shorts which he put on to work in his ...


I am currently working on a recording of Shacharis according to Nusach Arizal (Chabad). You inspired me. It should be on Youtube sometime and I'll give a link here when it's done. :)


The Rambam writes in Hilchos Tefillah Chapter 8, Halacha 4, "How do we perform Tefilla B’Tzibbur, Public Prayer? One person Davens out loud and everyone else listens." This teaches that Tefilla B’Tzibbur is only possible through the Shaliach Tzibbur. We can understand from here that the Shaliach Tzibbur is not just “leading the Davening”. Rather, he is ...
