"Hecha Kedushah"


Rabbi Moshe Isserles wrote that when the time available for minchah is short, one should begin reciting the amidah along with the chazan's repetition. However, contemporary practice is to have the chazan recite the beginning of his repetition, through kedushah, and then have the community recite their silent amidah, and have the chazan finish his recitation silently.

[This is the phenomenon known as "hecha kedushah".]

(Rivivot Ephraim 1:166:2)
