Audio Roundup 2024:21

by Joel Rich

Has anyone heard a reason why the practice of the chazan saying the bracha on hallel first (followed by the kahal) was established? Similarly, the rabbi/chazan counting sfira? (other than so everyone knows the date or so to be yotzei with him if you forgot a day)

Any thoughts on the ordering of the requests in rosh chodesh musaf, in particular why are mchilat cheit and slichat avon at the end when in the weekday shmoneh esrai they are at the beginning? (I understood their weekday placement was based on prioritizing the closeness of our relationship with HKBH before asking for our personal needs.)

Please direct any informal comments to [email protected].
