If one forgets to say ‘v’sein tal u’matar —
- If he remembered before saying the shem HaShem of the conclusion of the berachah, he goes back to vesein tal….and says from there.
- If he said the shem HaShem of the conclusion of the berachah, even if he just said Baruch Atta HaShem (and nothing else yet), he continues, and says vesein tal.. in shema koleinu.
- If he did not insert it in shema koleinu, but remembered that he forgot after saying shem HaShem of the conclusion of the shema koleinu berachah, but nothing else (i.e, he said Baruch Atta HaShem), he should conclude lamdeinee chukechoh, say vesein tal u’matar livrachah, and continue ki atta shome’a…(continued iyh next week)
The Kaf HaChaim (siman 151:8) describes the severity of the aveirah of talking in Shul , and says that one who talks in Shul inappropriately would be better off not coming to shul at all.
Poll question:Do you think the Kaf HaChaim’s statement should be our Shul policy?
