Siman 103 – Passing wind during Tefilla

  • If one passes gas in the middle of Shemoneh Esray he should wait for any odor to dissipate before continuing to daaven. (ShA 1)
  • There is no prohibition to hold in gas. (MB 3)
  • One should try his hardest not to allow gas to pass during tefilla. If he cannot control it – at least move the tefillin off of their places first. (MB 3)
  • If gas passes – think how embarrassed you are to have such a body.   (MB 9)
