On all days, one says Sim Shalom by Shacharis and Shalom Rav by Maariv, and by Mincha, one usually says Shalom Rav, except for fast days. (At least according to Nusach Ashkenaz, a topic discussed here, here, and here.)

Here, the discussion is what if someone accidentally switched them. What if one switched them on purpose?

  • Why would on purpose be different?? – Double AA Apr 6 '17 at 13:09
  • @DoubleAA Perhaps it's only okay bedieved, but not lechatchilah. – DonielF Apr 6 '17 at 13:09
  • Of course it's not ok lechatchilah. Lechatchila you follow the Nusach. That's not what you are asking about. (Though note some Nuschaot have Sim Shalom always and others have Shalom Rav always.) – Double AA Apr 6 '17 at 13:11
  • Even if you skip half the words on purpose you're Yotzei judaism.stackexchange.com/a/15925/759 How could this be worse? – Double AA Apr 6 '17 at 13:12
  • @DoubleAA I don't think it is. Want to post that as an answer? – DonielF Apr 6 '17 at 13:30
