Zecher or Zeicher- What's the issue


Zecher or Zeicher- What's the issue
?


The word for “memory” is apparently “zeicher” (Tehillim 111:4). The question is whether “memory of”
(סמיכות)
changes to zecher.

According to the Mesora, it is Zeicher and therefore in Ashkenazi Shuls (Yekes) they don't repeat it since Mesora
overrides Dikduk.

I think it is the Mishna Verurah to be one of the first Poskim who writes to repeat it twice*, although Minhag Chabad &
other Chasidim is to do so as well.

*There seems to be a Machlokes between R.Chaim Volozhiner & the Ma'aseh Rav how the Gaon read it and if he changed his mind later on in life.
