Ask the rabbi Halacha Times of Day and of Prayer

Tzet HaKochavim

Question
According to the Gaon when is Tzet HaKochavim in N.Y. and N.J.?
Answer
ב"ה Shalom The opinion of the Gra, whom I assume you are referring to as the Gaon is that is Tzet HaKochavim 3/4 of a "Mil" after sunset. Rav Moshe Feinstein zt"l deals with this in detail in a Teshuva. שו"ת אגרות משה אורח חיים חלק ד סימן סב. If this is accepted in all communities in New York and New Jersey, is something I suggest you take it up with your local Rabbi. The issue is also discussed in a sefer called מאבני המקום, סי' א , פרק ז. All the best
