Amen after Baruch She'amar


Baruch she'Amar is the berachah that opens the psukei d'zimra portion of our morning davening, and it is considered to be a berachah "on" the songs we are about to sing in psukei d'zimra. Therefore, we should not interrupt, or even pause, between Baruch she'Amar and the start of psukei d'zimra.

Nonetheless, one may respond Amen to another person's Baruch she'Amar even before he has had a chance to start the songs of psukei d'zimra. We view the "Amen" as part of the praise that is in psukei d'zimra.

(Rivivot Ephraim 1:50:8)

Have a great day,
