Q. Hello Rav, I am wondering what is permitted to do between the time I’m done my personal Amidah and the time that the Shaliach Tzibbur starts the Chazara repetition. Am I permitted to say tehillim (quietly to myself) or learn Torah (quietly to myself)? Can I sit down while I wait?
Thank you!
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that it is better to learn Torah quietly or by just looking into a sefer.
Poskim indeed maintain that one may sit if in need and is not close (four amos) to someone still davening Shemonezreh.
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as advised by Horav Shlomo Miller and Horav Aharon Miller Shlit’a
