Rosh HaShanah: Extended Prayer


One should extend his prayers until at least midday on Rosh haShanah, even adding poems and prayers as needed, in order to ensure that he is praying during the period of judgment (which we are taught occurs in the first part of the day), and in order to make sure one is not sinning during the period of judgment.

One should not lengthen the service simply with melodies, though.

Midday is 12:52 PM in Allentown this Rosh haShanah.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 584:1; Mishneh Berurah 584:5)

Have a great day,
