On the Yamim Noraim, a special trop is used for reading the Torah. For someone who generally reads shma with the trop, would it be preferable to use the special trop if possible?

I ask because generally, we use one trop "mode" for Torah reading throughout the day. Shma is said with the Torah trop because that's where it's from. Do we use the mode of the day here, or might we use different modes for leining and shma?

  • On Tisha Bav should they read it with Eicha trop? – Double AA Sep 28 '14 at 1:30

    @DoubleAA If the Torah is read with Eicha trop, then the question would apply to that as well. – Scimonster Sep 28 '14 at 1:46
  • If oyu could indicate why you think the Trop used to read the Torah specifically that day should be relevant that would improve your question. – Double AA Sep 28 '14 at 1:52
  • I know of lots of days when we use multiple trop modes, such as Shabbat, Purim, Shavuot, Shabbat Chol HaMoed and Tisha Bav (we use three on the latter 3!). – Double AA Sep 28 '14 at 3:01

    Actually you didn't say that. Nor did you explain why you think you hsould limit yourself to Torah. Furthermore, some places use different modes for different parts of the Torah reading on Shabbat Chazon, fast days and/or Simchat Torah. – Double AA Sep 28 '14 at 3:11
