Q&A relating to Rosh Hashanah
- Question: [Sunday 28th Elul 5781]
Should I repeat Shemoneh Esrei on Rosh Hashanah if I accidentally skipped Vichein Ten Pachdecha, but recited Hamelech Hakadosh?
No, you are to simply continue as usual.
Explanation: The saying of Vichein Ten Pachdecha is only a custom, therefore if one forgot to recite it he may continue with his prayers.
