Halacha - talis on head
Submitted by Meir ben baruch ACohen  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

The Mishna Berura writes that ideally one should cover his head with the talis from the beginning of davening until the end. One should at least wear the talis over ones head from Yishtabach until after Shmona Esrei. The absolute minimum required by halacha is to cover the head for Shmona Esrei with more than just a yarmulka, either a hat or the talis is satisfactory.
