Frequently Asked Questions and Answers found in Halacha

Rabbi Akiva Moshe Silver

If he is standing in the Menchah part and wants to sleep before the Shabbat meal and has someone to wake him up, is it better to sleep now and get up when the stars come out to pray Ma'ariv and Kash at the time or is it better for him to pray Mearib of Shabbat night in the Menhah part and sleep afterwards

Since some say that the custom of the Ashkenazim is to make it stricter not to pray in the leading part even in the OT [see Kovacs Tesvetov HA 23, Lichot Shlomo Tefila Pid Arhot Halacha 10, and some disagree see Commentaries and Supplements C. Resez Skag] , and since he is not yet forbidden to sleep at the moment because of the evening prayer until half an hour before the stars rise [from the 19th century], therefore it is better that he sleep now and wake him up for the evening prayer to recite Kash and a prayer at its time.
