From the Rav’s Desk: When to take the three steps back up in Chazaras Hashatz of RH Davening

  1. Question: [Thursday, 3rd Tishrei, 5782]

Normally, we always take the three steps back up after Shemoneh Esrei when the Chazan reaches Kedusha? When should we take the three steps back up on Rosh Hashanah Shacharis and Musaf where Kedusha is not recited until almost an hour later?



Although in general when Davening with a Minyan one is to remain in place with his feet aligned in the area that he completed his three steps back, until the Chazan reaches Kedusha, nonetheless, by Shacharis and Musaf of Rosh Hashanah which contain Piyutim, one may take three steps back as soon as the Chazan begins his repetition.
