Is there some sort of standard response to "Amen"? That is, if another says Amen in response to one's blessing.

    Some clarification of context is needed. Amen is itself a response. In what circumstances do you expect this response requires a response? Or if you have no context: add your understanding of what amen means so that an answer may address your understanding of it – RonP Jul 7 '16 at 17:38

    Maybe "Amen" back to them? It means "may it be so..." – ezra Jul 7 '16 at 20:39
  • no. [char.....] – mevaqesh Jul 29 '16 at 6:50

I have heard "כן י'הי רצון" -- approximately "would that it were so" -- used in this function (and, otherwise, as a substitute for "Amen").
