Why Repeat “Elokeinu Veilokei Avoteinu”?


Eloheinu Veilohei Avoteinu is the last paragraph of the
Amidah 4th Bracha (Holiness of Shabbat.)
Why is this paragraph repeated again after Magen Avot
on Friday Evening Maariv service?



  1. There are a series of prayers that are recited after the Amidah when there is a Minyan present. They are a form of repetition of the Amidah and that particular paragraph was included because it is defines the Kedushah of Shabbat even though it has already been said within the Amidah, itself.
