# Chazal viewed the recitation ==The Weekly Halachic Analysis== ==Summary of אמן very highly and compared its recitation to a signature that attests to the validity of a document. In fact, Chazal tell us Daily Halacha's==# The Gemara notes that responding אמן there is of greater significance than reciting the Berachaan apparent contradiction between two pesukim in Tehillim. The failure to recite אמן is considered a gross transgressionOn one hand, while responding אמן with great concentration opens the gates of Gan Eden. <ref>ברכות נג:pasuk says that Hashem owns the world, חיי אדם כלל ו:אyet, שבת קיט: רשי שם ד"ה בכל כוחו</ref># The letters of אמן are the root letters of other pasuk describes how the word אמונה, belief or trustland was given to manking. By responding אמן one declares: "I believe in the blessing Chazal explain that I have just heard and I affirm its truth." Additionallyindeed, when responding אמן one should have in mind the beginning of the Beracha, ברוך אתה ה', that Hahshem's name is Blessed. Thus, for example, when responding אמן after מגן אברהם, one should have in mind, "The Name of everything belongs to Hashem should be blessed, and it is true that He shielded our forefather Avrohombut once a person recites a bracha over a certain worldly pleasure, and I believe he acquires it". <ref>ש"ע קכד:ו, מ"ב קכד:כדGemara [[Brachot]] 35a</ref># One should answer אמן Chazal, therefore, instituted a series of [[brachot]] to any be recited every morning, each blessing one hears whether he wishes corresponding to fulfill an obligationanother of the various worldly benefits and pleasures. # Many poskim rule that while reciting [[Birchot HaShachar]], the morning [[Berachos]], and while reciting blessing of praise or even if thanks, one overhears a Berachadoes not need to stand. Others recommend standing. One should respond אמן after each line in Bircas Hamazon Some say that begins הרחמן. Moreover, the obligation to respond אמן even this only applies to a ברכה that does if it will not contain Hashemdetract from one's Name, such as answering to a Mi Sheberachconcentration. <ref>שPri Megadim (Peticha LeHilchot [[Brachot]] #18 and M"ע קכדZ 432:ו3, קפט:הHalichot Shlomo ch. 20, רטוTeshuvot VeHanhagot 2:ט37</ref># The proper intention In Talmudic times each of the word אמן changes with [[Birchot HaShachar]] were recited when the particular benefit for which it was composed occurred: One would open his eyes and recite the Beracha. When answering אמן to ברכות המצוה or ברכות הנהנין-Mitzvoh blessing Poke'ach Ivrim; when one would sit up he would say, [[BerachosMatir]] or Asurim; etc. Nowadays, because of a concern of unclean hands when reciting the [[Berachosblessings]] on enjoying things, one's intention should be to affirm as well as the truth prevalence of those without sufficient knowledge of the Beracha and his belief in it. When answering to ברכות השבחHalacha, one should have in mind that he is affirming we recite all the truth of that praise. When responding אמן to תפילות one's אמן should be an entreaty to Hashem to fulfill that [[prayerBrachot]]at one time, after preparing oneself for Teffilah. At times, ברכות can have multiple purposes and as such one should have multiple כוונות <ref>שShulchan Aruch 46:ע קכד1-2, Aruch HaShulchan 46:ו, ומ"ב שם ס"ק כה9</ref># When reciting In three of the [[KiddushBirchot HaShachar]] on Friday night, we say the words ויהי ערב ויהי בקר quietly before saying יום הששי. In truththank Hashem for not making us a non-Jew, ויהי ערב who isn't obligated in any mitzvot or a slave who is actually limited in the second part of the Passuk which precedes יום הששיmitzvot he is obligated in. We don’t say those words out loud because the first letters of יום הששי ויכלו השמים form the name of Men also recite a bracha thanking Hashem-הויהfor not being created a woman who is not as obligated as men in certain mitzvot. While we generally avoid reciting Pesukim in ways which differ from At this time, women also affirm their presentation unique status in the Torah, "כל פסוקא דלא פסקיה משה אנן לא פסקינן", nonetheless we only say the second part, Judaism and don't say the first part of the Passuk quietly because Chazal Darshen the words "טוב מאד" as referring to deathrecite SheAsani Kirsono. <ref>רמ"א רע"א:י, לבוש שם סעיף י, ערה"ש רעאTur and Shulchan Aruch 46:כה, חת"ס או"ח סי' י4</ref>
