Mincha Ketzara

Mincha Ketzara:[1]

If enough time does not remain for a Minyan to Daven Mincha and recite Chazaras Hashatz, then the Minyan is to Daven a Mincha Ketzara. [However, according to Kabala, one is to never Daven a Mincha Ketzara, even if the Minyan is pressed for time.[2] This applies even if the repetition will take place after sunset.[3]]
