# 2717 Face to Face

Q, When davening in the backyard, if the Sefer Torah is kept on an aron inside the family room that has a door open to the porch and can be seen from there, do you fall tachanun on your face then?
A. Remah (O.H. 131:2) rules that on a chotzer or courtyard open to the shul, one falls tachanun on the face. Mishna Berura (13) explains that if one can see from where he is a part of the aron, it is considered as being in front of it.
Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that our case is similar.
