Repeating the word "Shema"


One should not recite the word "Shema," or the entire first verse, twice; that would create the appearance of worshipping multiple gods.

If, however, one realizes that he was not concentrating when he first said it, he may repeat it silently. If no one else is around, he may even repeat the words aloud.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 61:9; Mishneh Berurah 61:22)

Have a great day,
