From the age of bar mitzvah, we pray at the amud. Yet many who do are unfamiliar with thehalachos that apply to the sheliach tzibbur. This is especially true of those in mourning, who are suddenly and unexpectedly called upon to lead the congregation on a daily basis. Even those well versed in halachah are not always knowledgeable in these laws.
At the Amud is designed to guide and familiarize the sheliach tzibbur with the halachos he needs to know to fulfill his obligation. It includes chapters on the halachos that apply to a minyan and to those saying Kaddish . The laws and minhagim of the daily tefillos, Kerias HaTorah and the different Kaddeishim are also discussed. Authoritative and fully annotated, with appendices and a useful index, this sefer is a must for every Jewish home.
