Q. If someone davens maariv in a minyan that is too fast, and he can’t say the complete “Baruch Hashem Leolam” before beginning the amida betzibur, should he omit some or all of the psukim and just continue with the bracha of Yiru Einenu at the end? Or should he omit the complete addition that in other nuschaot is also excluded?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that the added section of “Baruch Hashem Leolam” before beginning the amida, has to be said complete or not at all. If one will not be able to begin the amida together with the tzibur, it should be totally omitted.
