v'Ten Tal UMatar


This coming Tuesday night, the 7th of Cheshvan, Israelis begin to pray for rain by inserting "v'Ten Tal UMatar" into the daily Amidah. Outside of Israel, we wait until the beginning of December.

Israelis who are outside Israel, and non-Israelis who are in Israel, follow their home practices when reciting the silent Amidah, assuming they plan to return home in the short-term. Of course, opinions vary in defining "short-term"... the Mishneh Berurah defines it as that year.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 117; Mishneh Berurah 117:5)

Have a great day,
