Amen after "gaal yisrael"


There is debate regarding whether one should respond "Amen" after the blessing of "gaal yisrael" in the morning prayers, right before the amidah; some suggest that this would constitute an interruption between one's own blessing and the amidah.

Two popular solutions for the problem are to have the chazan conclude the blessing silently, or for the congregation to recite the end of the blessing with the chazan, and not say "Amen". However, an Ashkenazi who hears the chazan's conclusion of his blessing should follow the view of Rama and say "Amen".

(Rivivot Ephraim 1:71)

Have a great day,
