Yes. It's says, 'כי ביתי בית תפילה יקרא לכל העמים'. "My house shall be a house of prayer to all nation". Thus, they can

The general attitude towards prayers of non-Jews is from Isiah 57.7: כי ביתי בית תפילה יקרא לכל העמים -- For My House shall be called a House of Prayer for all the nations. Brachos The Rema paskens that one should respond 'Amen' to the blessings of a non-Jew, providing one heard the entire blessing. A non-Jew should not say anything false in his ...

There is no obligation for a Noahide to wear garments for prayers (if they do pray). The main point is that Noahides should not create for themself (in their own mind) a religious precept to wear a specific garment (something like a Jewish tallis or something similar to it), because he would be creating for himself an innovated commandment, which is ...

Let me just outline some basic ideas: Judaism does not deal with the details of Gentile observance beyond the 7 Noahide laws. Prayer is not one of those laws. Gentiles are free to express themselves in prayers and praises (or bring the sacrifices to the Jewish Temple once it returns B"H) in any way they like because those are optional. Gentiles (and Jews ...

R Eliezer Melamed in Peninei Halacha (Tefila 21:7) writes we do not say Tachanun on Erev Yom Haatzmaut Today, ever since Hashem began to bring forth our redemption, Tachanun is not recited on Yom HaAtzma’ut (Israel’s Independence Day), and on the 28th of Iyar, Yom Yerushalayim (Jerusalem Liberation Day), nor at Minchah before each of them This is ...

My understanding of the Kitzur's ruling is that the default (or 'null' - hat-tip @Double AA) state is to recite v'ten bracha. V'ten tal umatar is a mandated addition to the amidah during a certain season. (See this question and its answer for support for this assertion.) The season starts the first weekday arvit on or after December 4th/5th (in the Diaspora)...

See SA OC 109.1 הנכנס לבית הכנסת ומצא צבור מתפללין אם יכול להתחיל ולגמור קודם שיגיע שליח ציבור לקדושה או לקדיש יתפלל והוא הדין אמן דהאל הקדוש ושומע תפלה דינן כקדיש וקדושה (תוספות והרא"ש ומרדכי פרק מי שמתו ותרומת הדשן סימן י"א). One who has just entered the synagogue he find that the congregation are praying. If he is able to begin and end before ...

I can't point to specific sources; but while initiative is certainly important, the entire point of prayer in Judaism is recognizing that you Can't do it yourself. Of course anything one does "himself" is also only through the help of G-d, but it seems that praying for a solution that doesn't require one's strength or involvement would be the easier way to ...

The words of the KSA are: טעה במעריב ליל ראשון של פסח והתפלל תפלת שמונה עשרה של חול, ונזכר לאחר שהתחיל ''ברך עלינו'', שהדין הוא שצריך לסיים כל אותה ברכה (כמו שנתבאר לעיל סימן ע''ו), אינו אומר ''טל ומטר'', כיון שגם הציבור אינם אומרים.‏ Extended paraphrase, following the explanation of the Chochmat Shelomo. If he made a mistake at the first night ...

Prayer is an organized form of speaking to God, but you can formulate your own prayers in your own words. There is actually an "organized time" for adding personal prayers at the end of the Amida (Shemone Esre) prayer that one says three times a day. If the baby already has a name, you should mention it. If you prefer to rely on existing prayers, one ...
