Dear Rabbi, when I sit down at my desk (nowadays, with COVID-19, it’s in my home office) and start the workday, is there a prayer I should be saying right then? What I’m trying to ask is: How does a person bring God into one’s personal workplace?
Dear Rabbi, I have a question about Grace after Meals. I’ve seen people who just say the regular Grace after Meals, but I’ve also seen people who add an introduction before saying it. Could you please explain this? Thanks.
"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.
