Turning around at "Bo'i b'Shalom"


The explanations for why we turn around at the "Bo'i b'Shalom" paragraph of Lecha Dodi include the idea that we face west because the Shechinah is manifest there.

Therefore, if the shul's entrance is not in the west, we still turn to face west at "Bo'i b'Shalom".

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 3:45)

Have a great day,
