Question
"Adonai, s'fatai tiftach ufi yagid t'hilatecha" Opening line of the Amidah Is this line supposed to be recited every time we say the Amidah? Is it said at Shacharit, Musaf, Mincha, and Maariv? Is it a personal line said quietly or does the Cantor say it aloud? Is it said during the repetition of the Amidah? It seems that in my congregation it is only recited out loud periodically and with a special niggun. Thanks.

Question
I read that there’s a request to pray for an Israeli soldier who was recently critically wounded in a shooting attack. His name was given as Netanel Ilan ben Shaina Tzipora. I notice that his name mentions his mother’s name. Why is that so? Thanks.
