Translating prayer


One may not interrupt his amidah to recite translations of the Hebrew in the middle; that would constitute an inappropriate interruption and invalidate the amidah.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 3:8)

[Note: One who cannot read the Hebrew should use a good translation in a different language. The law presented here is for one who can read the Hebrew, but who wishes to recite translations as well in order, perhaps for the purpose of improving his concentration.]

Have a great day,
