A different nusach, Part II


Following up on yesterday's email:

When one davens in a shul which has a nusach that differs from his own, one may continue to use his personal nusach for parts that are recited quietly and do not require a minyan.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 2:23)

המצפה לישועה,


  1. Good morning,

    If one's nusach is different than that of the shul, and one is the only one saying Kaddish, can one then say Kaddish of a different nusach than the normal shul's nusach?

  2. As I understand it, based on Rav Moshe in this halachah and the one from two days back, one would be required to use the shul's minhag for kaddish whether one was reciting it alone or in a group.
