Uvah L’Tzion on Shabbat Mincha


Why is uva letzion recited at mincha was instead of shacharit on Shabbat?



  1. The Rabbis teach that the loftiest moments in Shabbat are those when Hashem not only accepts our Tefillot with favor but yearns together with His Chosen Nation for the final redemption. That happens as Shabbat begins to wane and we daven Mincha and that is why Uvah L’Tzion is recited
    – because it speaks of the incontrovertible fact that the Meshiach will come.
