DAILY TEFILLAH תפילה בחול

During the week, prayers are recited three times a day: in the morning (Shahrit), in the afternoon (Mincha) and in the evening (Arbit). The Shahrit prayer has a lot of sections which I have listed below. The Mincha and Arbit are shorter prayers and are listed below as well.
