Halacha - Early Shabbat
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

The potential issue would be that there is a machlokes Tannaim if the final time to daven Mincha is shkiyas hachama and the earliest time for Maariv is tzeis hakochavim or the latest time for Mincha is plag hamincha (1 and a quarter hours before shkiya) and the earliest time for Maariv is shkiya. It is an inherent contradiction to daven Mincha after plag and Maariv before tzeis on the same day. However, the Rema rules that one may change from day to day, and just because once in your life you davened Mincha after plag does not obligate you to always wait for tzeis to daven Maariv. Therefore, it is not necessary to always do the same thing, as we see the minhag for hundreds of years has been to make early Shabbos in the summer and not the winter.
