The Other Side of the Story - Pray Delay
I am a Rabbi at a yeshiva (Talmudic academy) in Jerusalem. Our yeshiva davens (prays the morning service) on Shabbat at 7:45. I like to pray earlier, so I would often attend a sunrise service at around 6:25. Then I would come to my yeshiva’s service in time for the Torah reading.
I was told that someone overheard a student saying, “Why do I have to come on time if Rabbi G. always comes late?”
