Question
I have always prayed nossach ’sfard’ but I have been living in London for 4 years now and in most of the places they pray nossach ’askenaz’ for now I plan to stay here. I am reluctant to switch to nossach ’askenaz’ as tradition is important to me on the other hand it does not make sense to pray in the different nossach than everybody. Should I switch? Thanks
Answer
It is of great importance you keep your Nussach. The Jewish nation has survived generations by keeping family traditions. Therefore, when praying you should use your Nussach, unless you are a Chazzan or answering communal prayers such as Kedusha or Tahcanun. Rabbi Yosef Weitzen
