Chapter 14: 7-8
P'sukei D'zimroh

7.Therefore, if after reciting the three blessings mentioned above and putting on the tallis and tefillin, a person sees he does not have enough time left to be able to recite the Shemoneh Esreh with the minyan unless he skips and begins with the blessing yotzer or, he should begin there.

If he has time to recite Boruch she'omar, Tehilloh l' Dovid until its conclusion Shem kodsho l'olom vo'ed [i.e.Ashrei], and Yishtabach, he should recite them. Should he have further time, he should recite Halleluyah, hallelu El b'kodsho until Kol haneshomoh t'hallel Yoh, Halleluyah.

If he has further time, he should recite Halleluyah, hallelu El min hashomayim... Should he have still more time, he should also recite the other Psalms that begin "Halleluyah."

If he has additional time, he should also recite from Vayivorech Dovid until l'shem tifartecho. If he has still additional time, he should begin reciting Hodu and continue until V'Hu rachum, and then skip from there until the repetition of the latter verses before Ashrei.

Should a similar situation occur on Sabbaths and festivals, and a person lacks the time to recite the psalms which are added to the service, then priority should be given to those psalms and verses which are recited every day. If there is additional time, one should also recite some of those psalms that are added.

It appears to me that on the Sabbath and on Yom Kippur, precedence should be given to Mizmor shir l'yom haShabbos and the great Hallel (i.e. Hodu L'Ado-nai ki tov[Psalm 136]). On other festivals, precedence should be given to the great Hallel alone. Afterwards, precedence should be given to the psalm Lam'natzeach l'Dovid b'shanoso and Tefilloh l'Mosheh.

All these verses and Psalms should be said before Yishtabach. At the entire service, one should complete those prayers which were skipped. However, Boruch she'omar and Yishtabach should not be recited after the service.

If a person sees that even if he begins at the blessing yotzer or, he will not be able to recite the Shemoneh Esreh together with the minyan unless he hurries his prayers, it is preferable that he pray alone, reciting the entire service slowly, and with proper concentration. (See Chapter 20, Laws 11 and 12.)

8. A person who comes to the synagogue after the congregation has already begun to recite the P'sukei D'zimroh and is lacking a tallis and tefillin, but expects that they will be brought to him shortly, may recite P'sukei D'zimroh in the interim. When they are brought to him, he should put them on between the blessings Yishtabach and yotzer or, and recite the blessings for them.

If he fears that taking the time to put them on will prevent him from reciting the Shemoneh Esreh with the minyan, he should skip from the V'Hu rachum in Hodu until teh V'Hu Rachum before Ashrei; alternatively, skip from Vayosh' [before the song of the Red Sea] until Yishtabach and recite only the essential psalms, as explained above, so that will have the opportunity to put them on after he says Yishtacach, before the chazon recited Kaddish.
