"Sim shalom" confusion


One who begins to say Sim Shalom at minchah or maariv, instead of Shalom Rav, should continue with Sim Shalom even if he has not yet said Gd's Name.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 4:18)

[The opposite error, in which one substitutes Shalom Rav for Sim Shalom, is somewhat more complicated; see Rav Moshe's responsum for more.]

Have a great day,
