Q. Re- question 3214. Are there any issues in pronouncing correctly both words Elokai Neshama?
A. Mishna Berura (46: 3) mentions that one should separate the pronunciation of the words Elokai and Neshama, so it does not sound as if his Neshama or soul, is chas veshalom his deity, which constitutes words of heresy and apostasy.
Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit”a stressed that often people discussing the Halacha of that brocho, are not careful in how it should be pronounced, and that should seriously be avoided.
However, the Rov added that since after all, if the name of Hashem is not said explicit, on such occasions, only Elokai is mentioned, there could be room to be lenient.
