Wind and rain (Halacha a day)

Since Mussaf on Shmini Atzeret we have been praising Hashem for the wonderful gift of rain, by adding Mashiv HaRu’ach Umorid HaGeshem – משיב הרוח ומוריד הגשם – into the second Bracha of the Amida.

If one forgets to add this?

If one has not yet finished the 2nd Bracha then one adds it after any of the many phrases in this Bracha. If one wishes, one may restart the Bracha and say it in it’s correct place.

If one already finished the 2nd Bracha?

– If you have the custom of adding “Morid haTal” – מוריד הטל – during the summer, then continue as usual. No amendment is required.

– If you do NOT have the custom of adding “Morid haTal” – מוריד הטל – during the summer, then you have to restart the Amida from the beginning. This is because the first 3 Brachot of the Amida are considered a single entity.

One continues saying V’Then Bracha – ותן ברכה – in the 9th Bracha of the Amida until the 7th Marcheshvan in Israel and the 5th December in the Diaspora.
