Halacha - havdala in shmone esrei
Submitted by Adam  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: Hi My friend asked me an interesting question: If one accidentally begins the bracha of attah chonen on a yom tov that falls on Saturday night, I believe he must complete the bracha. But what should he do about havdala? Should he say attah chonantanu there or wait and say vatodienu or maybe he should say vatodienu in attah chonen? I realize this is not a common problem but I thought it was an interesting problem nevertheless. Does the rav have any ideas?
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.
