6 Shevat 5764

Kel Melech Neeman


Various Rabbis

Question:
When davening alone from a Chabad Siddur one dosent say Kel Melech Neeman before the Shma. Is that exlusively a Chabad custom?

Answer:
The Rm"a writes (61:3): "... and some wrote that anyone saying Shma alone should say 'Kel Melech Ne'eman'... and such is the Minhag. It seems to me that in any case when saying Shma with a Tzibbur one does not say 'Kel Melech Ne'eman'..." - that is the Ashkenazi custom but Spharadim don't follow this practice.
The Shulchan Aruch Harav (6:4) wrote that there are those who say that Kel Melech Ne'eman is said when one recites the Shma alone.
