tefilas arvis and arvus - a connection?
While on the topic of arvus, if you missed reading it last year, it is worth revisiting this post. Chazal derive from this week’s parsha that Ya’akov Avinu instituted tefilas arvis, which the Tiferes Shlomo connects with the concept of arvus, each member of klal Yisrael sharing collective responsibility. My wife once suggested that the minhag of women not davening arvis may go hand in hand with their being excluded (according to the Dagul m’Revava) from the concept of arvus.
