It is proper to say before [the morning] prayers, הריני מקבל עלי מצות עשה של... — “I hereby undertake to fulfill the mitzvah, ‘Love your fellowman as yourself.’ ”1

In the Shema (p. 46) which some people recite early in the morning, before the full prayer service, in order to discharge the obligation of reciting it within its proper time, the final three words, אני ה' אלקיכם, are repeated [as they are in any private reading of the Shema], and one concludes with the word אמת.2

When saying אנא בכח (p. 22) one should look at, or have in mind, the Divine Names incorporated in the initial letters of the words of each sentence. They should not, however, be pronounced.3

When leading the service, the Rebbe Shlita reads at least the conclusion of the Beraisa of Rabbi Yishmael (p. 25) in a voice that is audible4 to a quorum of worshipers, and in the tonal mode that is traditional for the study of such texts. The same applies to the conclusion of the paragraph that precedes Aleinu and that begins, אמר רבי אלעזר (p. 83); and it applies too to the conclusion of the Mishnayos (pp. 406-8) that are studied after the prayers. The above is the case if Kaddish DeRabbanan is to be said after these texts are read.

According to the AriZal (as explained in Pri Etz Chayim, Shaar HaKaddishim) one should say Kaddish DeRabbanan after איזהו מקומן and the Beraisa of Rabbi Yishmael, before הודו (p. 26). “There is an obligatory mitzvah to reinstate the reading of Kaddish DeRabbanan before [the morning] prayer, in keeping with universal Jewish practice.”5

When reciting Kaddish one bows one’s head as follows: (a) at שמיה רבא; (b) at ויקרב משיחה; (c) at ואמרו אמן, after which one momentarily raises the head; (d) at יהא שמה רבא...יתברך, after which one again stands erect before bowing the head slightly at (e) וישתבח...ויתהלל, after which one stands erect once more before bowing the head (f) at שמה דקודשה בריך הוא and (g) again at ואמרו אמן. When saying ואמרו אמן at the end of the sentence in Kaddish Tiskabel that begins with the word תתקבל, the head is lowered only slightly.6

When saying עושה שלום at the end of Kaddish, one inclines and bows the head as follows: (a) to the right as one says עושה שלום במרומיו; (b) straight ahead as one says הוא; (c) to the left as one says יעשה שלום עלינו; and (d) again straight ahead as one says ועל כל ישראל ואמרו אמן.7
