|Halacha - Latest time for Mincha.|
|Submitted by Linda Haniford Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh|
Mishna Berura writes that one should not start Mincha if he cannot finish Shmona Esrei before shkiya. If you are running later then that it is better to wait and daven Maariv two times, or to daven right away having in mind that Shmona Esrei should count either as Mincha or Maariv, whichever is appropriate. However many have the minhag to rely on Rabbeinu Tam and recite Mincha until much later.
