Sunday night - "v'ten tal u'matar"

Prayer for Rain
Tonight, (Sunday night, 4 Dec) starting with the Maariv evening prayers, we begin inserting a request for rain -- "v'ten tal u'matar" -- in the 9th blessing of the Amidah. Outside of the Holy Land, the prayer for rain is recited beginning on the 60th day after the autumnal equinox -- on December 4th or 5th.
