Order of Priority in Prayer (Part I)

Dear Rabbi Simon

I have a question: I often find myself in the middle of Aleinu when the Kaddish starts. What is the best course of action in order to respect my obligations both to Kaddish and Aleinu? Do I stop Aleinu momentarily and follow Kaddish to then return to Aleinu?

With thanks, Brett

Dear Brett,

The correct way to do it is to pause in Aleinu and respond to Kaddish, then resume Aleinu.


Rabbi Simon
