Streamlining Synagogue Services

Streamlining Synagogue Services

The High Holiday prayers can often create long services and streamlining the synagogue service so not to offend the congregation is an important consideration. Halacha itself prohibits delaying or unnecessarily prolonging the synagogue service (טירחא דציבורא) or offending the honor or dignity of the congregation (כבוד הציבור). Join Rabbi Dovid Fink and survey the primary sources to understand what is permitted, what is prohibited, and why.
