Missing a Word in Atah Chonantanu


If, while reciting Atah Chonantanu after Shabbat, one mistakenly skips or mispronounces one or more words in the paragraph, does one still fulfill their requirement to perform activities not permitted on Shabbat? Or are Shabbat-restricted activities still prohibited?



  1. Obviously, it is always best to concentrate while praying and say the words correctly, but if a mistake was made in Atah Chonantanu, the Tefillah is valid and it is permissible to do things that are forbidden to do on Shabbat.
