Rav Kook was of the opinion that in order to fulfill one's obligation to
say Sh'ma you should ideally use your family's traditional hav'arah
However, he also felt it was preferrable to be consistant in a different
hav'arah than for someone who was used to a different hav'arah to try to
use his family's minhag and end up being inconsistant.
