Re: [Shefa] Mi'Sheberach on Shabbat??


Joe Rosenstein in his Siddur Eit Ratzon rewrites the Shabbos Musof Amidah to add petitions. His reasoning is that a large number of Jews (possibly some who are Conservative) daven in a minyan, mainly on Shabbos. Therefore they need the opportunity for petitionary prayer in a minyan. I think this logic works, but without changing our normal minhagim, very well for Mishererachim on Shabbos.

Eit Ratzon in an interesting siddur worth checking out for those who want a different view of Jewish prayer.
