  1. Some early authorities consider the mitzvah to pray as a biblical Mitzvah based on the פסוק “ועבדתם בכל לבבכם” which Chazal explain as a reference to the service of the heart. [1] However, many early authorities argue that the entire obligation is rabbinic. [2]

Shemona Esreh

  1. According to Sephardim all the brachot of Shemona Esreh all necessary and one may not say a portion of them without the others. For example, if one only knows a portion of the Brachot it is better not to say anything. [3] However, according to Ashkenazim one should say any of the Brachot one knows or one can. [4]

Obligation

  1. Gentiles are not obligated in Tefillah but if they do pray they fulfill a mitzvah like a person who isn’t commanded but volunteers. [5]
  2. Women are obligated in saying Shemona Esreh of Shacharit and Mincha. [6] It’s proper that women accept the yoke of heaven by saying Shema at least the first פסוק. [7]
  3. A woman who is unable to say Shemona Esreh of Shacharit should at least say a short prayer which includes praise, a request, and a thanks of Hashem. [8]
  4. A woman who has limited time for Shacharit should say parts of Tefillah according to the order of importance: 1)Shemona Esreh 2)first פסוק of Shemaand Emet VeYatsiv before Shemona Esreh 3) Baruch SheAmar, Ashrei, and Yishtabach, 4) Birchot HaShachar, 5) Birkat HaTorah, 6) Birchot Kriyat Shema and the entire Shema and 7) Pesukei Dezimra. [9]
  5. Women aren’t obligated in Arvit and if one wants to say it one should specify that it is done Bli Neder (so that it’s not binding after 3 times of performing it). [10]
