Bowing for Barchu


The Shulchan Aruch does not mention a practice of bowing for recitation of Barchu. However, there are early sources that mention the chazan bowing for Barchu, and today the practice of having both the chazan and the community bow for Barchu is widespread, and should be followed. One does not bow deeply as one does in the amidah, though.

(Rivivot Ephraim 1:47)

Have a great day,
