HaMelech haKadosh


Between Rosh haShanah and Yom Kippur, as well as on those holidays themselves, we add certain lines in to the daily Shmoneh Esreih (Amidah). These additions are noted in a standard siddur (prayer book).

One who forgets these additional lines should not go back and insert them. The only exception to this rule is the change of "HaKel haKadosh (The holy Gd)" to "HaMelech haKadosh (The holy King)" at the end of the third blessing. If one realizes he said the wrong word, he goes back to the beginning of the Amidah. One who catches the error after finishing the Amidah recites the Amidah again.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 582:1,2,5; Mishneh Berurah 582:4,9)

Have a great day,
