What if I already said Shema? Part II


Yesterday we noted that one who is in the room when others are reciting Shema should recite the first line with them, lest he appear to disagree with it (by his silence).

However: If one is praying, and at a point in prayer when interruption is prohibited, then he should simply say the words of the prayer he is in, but with the tune used for the opening line of Shema, so that his recitation will blend into theirs.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 65:2; Mishneh Berurah 65:11)

Have a great day,
