Shortening Shacharit


As we all know, Tachanun is omitted on some days. If on a day Tachanun is customarily recited, one must omit some prayers in order to shave time off their davening, is Tachanun first in line to be omitted? If general, if one does not have time for full davening, what prayers should one axe from Shacharit, and in what order?



  1. Yes, I think that Tachnun should be omitted first from all the other options that are available. There is a book in English called Rigshei Lev by Rabbi Menachem Nissel about women and Tefillah. It has a section with all the pertinent Halachos.
