Is there a hidur to start Shmone Esraei at the exact second of netz, or is there a problem of ose tefiloso keva?
The hiddur is in fact to start exactly at netz. The idea of ose tefiloso keva, means that a person’s attitude towards davening should not be that he is davening because he has to, and because this is the rule, that we must daven. This causes that the person’s davening is rushed, and with a goal of “getting it over with” Rather a person’s davening should be with an attitude that I have the opportunity to talk to and request my needs from the Almighty. It should also be said in a slow, deliberate manner. The way a poor person would talk to a rich person that he is asking for help.
