When doing a pasuk for shnayim mikrah, one may say Hashem's name if he completes the pasuk. However, when reading Onkeles, is one allowed to say Hashem's name? Meaning, does saying a full pasuk in Onkeles get the same treatment as saying a full pasuk when reading the Torah?

    What does "full pasuk" have to do with saying God's name? – Double AA Aug 3 at 20:42
  • are you making an assumption that, one may say Hashem's name ONLY if he completes the pasuk. maybe prove that. then your question will be so solid. – yishairasowsky Aug 4 at 10:21
  • Beginning of Gemara Brachos the Chacham Tzvi (Father of r emden) has tshuvah that it's mutar to do so regardless of Kavana. Although there are those that are machmir. One has to know himself. – FalseMessiah Aug 4 at 23:42

yes. In fact, you can also say Hashem's name during zmiros if you have kavanah.

    This answer could be improved by providing some evidence. As it stands now it is merely the assertion of an anonymous internet user whom none of us know. – Alex Aug 3 at 23:31
