One should not pause when saying “yehei shemei rabbah mevorach” until after the word “mevorach”. One should pause a bit between “amein” and “yehei shemei rabbah…”.
If the chazan omitted something essential from his quiet shemoneh esrei (e.g. “ya’aleh v’yavo” etc.), and did not realize it until he finished his , he may rely on his chazaras hashatz to fulfill his obligation.
If a person forgot to say “nishmas” on Shabbos:
- If he did not yet say the shem HaShem at the conclusion of yishtabach (“baruch atta HaShem”),he should go back to nishmas.
- If he did say the shem haShem already, he should conclude the beracha and not say “nishmas.”
If a person did not think about the meaning of the passuk “shema Yisrael”, he has not fulfilled his obligation to recite the Shema. He must repeat the shema.
If he is in doubt he must also repeat it!
If a person started saying “ya’aleh v’yavo” on a regular day:
- If he did not yet say the phrase “b’yom _______ hazeh”, he should stop immediately and continue with “vesechezena”.
- If he did say that phrase, he should stop and go back to “retzei”.
