by Joel Rich

Would you differentiate between the two concepts of anoos rachmana patrei (HKB”H does not attach liability to compelled actions) and afilu chashav laasot mitzvah vneenas . . . maaleh alav hakatur keilu asah (even if one thought to do a mitzvah and was compelled not to, HKB”H treats him as if he did it?) If so, how?

Visiting a shul questions:
• Would your shul allow a guest to read his own Aliya?
• Would your shul allow a guest to say his own nussach of kaddish (not as shatz)?
• Would your shul (in galut) allow the shatz not to say baruch hashem l’olam in maariv?
• Would your shul allow a guest to say 13 middot aloud by Tachanun?
• Would the answer be different if requested before prayer (vs. just don’t do it)?
