In the case where I overslept and missed shacharit, do I have to say minchah as soon as possible (i.e. minchah gedolah), or may I wait for my usual time? Certainly it's more practical to say it early, since one shouldn't eat before davening minchah in this case. But is there a requirement about it? If I chose to tough it out and wait until minchah ketanah or even plag haminchah, would that be allowed?

    Are you sure you can't eat small things that are not bread?

  • Welcome to MiYodeya Elliot and thanks for this first question. Your question might be closed because this site is not a good place for personal questions. Those should be asked to a rabbi well-versed in the relevant laws who will ask questions on context and personal specifics to come to a good answer. This site can't substitute for this. Please don't let this deter you from coming back to learn with us.
