Halacha - tefilin
Submitted by yossi  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

The Mishna Berura 25§14 writes that even though the Gemara calls someone who Davens without Tefilin מעיד עדות שקר בעצמו, this only refers to someone who did so out of negligence and laziness. However, someone who did not have access to Tefillin at the proper time certainly should not delay reciting Kriyas Shema at the proper time.

Halacha - Tehilim Group
Submitted by Sarah  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:  

Congratulations on this noble undertaking to help your friend.

 

1) Ideally, Tehillim should be recited as long as needed. There are those who recommend 40 days, commemorating the 40 days Moshe Rabbeinu davened for atonement on the Chet HaEgel. 2) It is not necessary to say "Bli Neder" before each time Tehillim is recited. However, if one commits to do so on a regular basis the stipulation should be added that it is not intended as an oath. 3) No, any amount is significant. 4) It is better not to recite Tehillim from sunset to midnight. However, if this is the most convenient time, it is also permitted. 5) I'm not sure I fully understand this question, but I don't see any requirement to sign up two people for the same Kapital. 6) It should be said as soon as you remember.

I hope this is helpful. If you have any further questions, feel free to ask.

Halacha - havdala in shmone esrei
Submitted by Adam  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

The Shmiras Shabbos K'Hilchaso is in doubt how to behave in your situation and is unsure if Ata Chonantanu should be recited or not. However, The Piskei Teshuvos quotes the Matas Yado and Over Orach that it should not be said, as the proper expression for Yom Tov is Bein Kodesh l'Kodesh and not Bein Kodesh l'Chol. Additionally, v'Todeainu should not be recited in Ata Chonen, rather in its proper location in the Tefila of Yom Tov.

Submitted by Naftoli  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: Tikkun Chatzos is a minhag based on Kabbala, not a requirement. It was always the purveiw of a few select Tzaddikim.

Halacha - selling aliyos
Submitted by Yissacher Moskowitz  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: No, however the Kohein may be asked to leave the shul before his aliya. Really, aliyos should be called in the order of the individual's importance. The first aliyos were designated for the Kohein and Levi to prevent fighting over the highest kibuddim. If they were allowed to be mochel it would defeat the entire purpose of the takana.

Halacha - Women and Chatzot
Submitted by Sherli  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: The times for a woman to daven Shacharis are identical to those for a man, and according to the Chazon Ish and Riv'vos Efraim she must say Birchos Kriyas Shema and Shmona Esrei before the fourth hour of the day and under extenuating circumstances until chatzos.

Halacha - Abriged Amidah
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: The source of the Chaye Adam is the gemara Berachos 28 and it is brought in Shulchan Aruch OC 110:1 and commonly referred to as "Tefilas Havineinu". However the Mishna Berura there in Biur Halacha and the Aruch HaShulcha write that it is not done just because one cannot concentrate on a full Shmona Esrei, because today people have difficulty concentrating even for an abridged version. Additionally, the Shulchan haTahor writes that it should not be said because Abaye in the Gemera there curses anyone who says an abridged tefilla. Furthermore, the Kaf HaChaim writes that since there are various nusachaos mentioned in the Poskim and we are uncertain which is correct, the minhag is to always only say the full version.

Halacha - aron not facing east
Submitted by e. Maybruch  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: Ideally everyone should face Yerushalaim and not th misplaced Aron HaKodesh. However if everyone is already accustomed to facing the front of the shuls, you as an individual should not face a different direction then the rest of the shul. Rather you should stand facing the same direction as everyone else, but turn your face the correct direction.

Halacha - Tefila/Tefillin
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: 4:30 is before Alos HaShachar in most of the world most of the year and is too early to put on Tefillin or daven Shacharis. Even if you daven then you have not fulfilled your obligation and must daven again at the correct time.

Halacha - hazarat ha-shatz
Submitted by Yitzchak Sheffrin  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: There would appear to be a contradiction in Shulchan Aruch because in OC 55:6 it says that as long as 10 men are present the repetition may be started even if one is davening or sleeping, and the Mishna Berura writes that even more then one would be acceptable as long as at least a majority of 6 are answering. However in OC 124:4 Shulchan Aruch writes that if there are not 10 men listening and answering to chazoras hashatz it is close to a beracha l'vatala. The Poskim give various solutions to resolve the situation, the general consensus is to wait for 9 unless there are significant extenuating circumstances.
