Ear Plugs for Prayer

Can you wear ear plugs for amidah if it helps kavana?


As long as they are inserted before the Amidah, and don’t disturb other people i.e. they don’t stand out and look funny to people, this would be permissible.

  1. I thought you had to hear the words from your mouth like Ruth? How is this possible with ear plugs?

    1. one must hear the words, i don’t think ear plugs will block out one’s own voice, if they do it would be an issue
