    Not to be controversial with the topic title, but do women (women who daven maariv) have to repeat krias shema after tzeis if they davened maariv before the zman (which I also don’t understand)? And why?

    Wouldn’t this really be a question about women’s obligation in shema rather than women and maariv?

    I once asked a Rosh Yeshiva whether we had recited the shema late enough at maariv that night. He read me the riot act, saying that in the time that it would take for me to ask the shilah and get a response, I could have recited the shema!

    Yes, but in the time it took you to ask and be answered, you also found out what the earliest time you could be yotzei is, so you’d know for the future.

    “you also found out what the earliest time you could be yotzei is”

    No, all he did was read me the riot act — he never answered the shilah!

    Our sovereign lord the King chargeth and commandeth all persons, being assembled, immediately to disperse themselves, and peaceably to depart to their habitations, or to their lawful business, upon the pains contained in the act made in the first year of King George, for preventing tumults and riotous assemblies. God save the King.

    Of course women don’t “have to”. They don’t have to say Krias Shma. It would be kind of silly not to. It’s a pretty easy Mitzvah to fulfill.

    Thanks, Sam! So they only get the mitzvah if they repeat it after tzeis, right?
