The Chazzan’s Speed During Kaddish


siddurWhen saying Kaddish the Chazzan must be vigilant to wait for the tzibbur to answer Amein before continuing the next words of Kaddish. Shulchan Aruch w/Mishnah Brurah 124:9 MB37

However, at “Amein Yehey Shemai Rabbah…” once the tzibbur has said the word Amein it is not a problem for the chazzan to continue because the tzibbur is not relying on the chazzan to be yotze the words “Yehey Shemai Rabbah….” inasmuch as they are saying these words¬†themselves. Halichos Shlomo citing R’ Shloma Zalman Auerbach 6:17, Piskei Tshuvos 124:15 fn:152
