General - Lo Titgodedu

Ashkenazim Praying with Sepharadim or Nusach Sefard

Sepharadim Praying with Ashkenazim

Pronunciation (Havara) & Nusach

  1. One may not change his pronunciation of the words to that of the Ashkenazim. The Sepharadic tradition has roots going back generations and should not be shirked;[1] Ashkenazim may choose to pray in the Sepharadi pronunciation.[2]
  2. The Chida writes how the Sepharadic Nusach is laden with more Kabbalistic secrets than the Ashkenazi one, and, according to the Arizal, has more routes to Heaven. Therefore, Ashkenazim can switch to Nusach Edot HaMizrach.[3]

Tefillin

  1. One should still put on his Tefillin Shel Yad as normal, even though Ashkenazim stand for both Shel Yad and Shel Rosh.[4]
  2. If one hears an Ashkenazi recite the Beracha of Al Mitzvat Tefillin on Tefillin Shel Rosh (without having talked after putting on the Shel Yad), he should not answer Amen, but it's praiseworthy to answer in one's thoughts.[5]

Seder HaTefillah

  1. One recites Kedushah according to the Sepharadic Nusach.[6]
  2. Ashkenazim recite Aleinu after Uva LeTzion, before Shir Shel Yom, which is not the order accepted by Sepharadim Kabbalistically. Therefore, one should continue praying as usual when the Ashkenazi Minyan he's in recites Aleinu and not change things. If the entire Tzibbur is standing, then he should stand, too, so he doesn't stand out by sitting.[7]

Shaliach Tzibbur

Amidah

  1. One who is in mourning and wishes to lead the Tefillah in an Ashkenazi Minyan should first seek the approval of the Ashkenazim to pray Nusach Edot HaMizrach. If they do not acquiesce, he should not be Shaliach Tzibbur.[8]

Other Parts of Tefillah

Such as Birkot HaShachar, Pesukei deZimra, Birkot Keriat Shema, Hallel

Kaddish

Reciting Mourner's Kaddish

  1. The Sepharadic Kaddish is recited with all of its highlights and nuances, except one may shorten "Yehe Shelama Rabbah" if reciting Kaddish with Ashkenazi mourners so that they conclude together.[9]

Sitting During Kaddish and Barechu

  1. It's proper to stand for Kaddish and Barechu so that one is not sitting between all those who are standing.[10]
