The third of theֲ three daily prayers, called theֲ maarivֲ (orֲ Arvit) prayer, is recited after dark (the first two are recited in the morning and afternoon). This prayer was instituted by our Patriarchֲ Jacob.
Arvitֲ is a Jewishֲ prayerֲ service held in the evening or night. It consists primarily of the evening Shema and Amidah. The service usually begins with two verses from Psalms, followed by the communal recitation of Barechu.
