“My Lord, Open My Lips…”
“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.
