Making up a missed Shema


There are those who rule that if a man does not say Shema at the appropriate time (see yesterday's email), he should recite it twice at the next opportunity. Thus if one missed it in the morning, he would recite it once at the evening service that night and then repeat it after the evening service. [This is not relevant for women, because the time restrictions apply only to men.]

This later recitation would not serve as a true "make-up" for that morning; it would be considered to fulfill a separate obligation.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 58:7; Mishneh Berurah 58:28)

Have a great day,
