Halacha - Nusach HaTefila
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: There is a machlokes in the Poskim regarding this issue. R' Moshe Feinstein zatzal held that your proper nusach is what your ancestors davened, presumably Ashkenaz, and you may not change the nusach you daven for the quiet part of Shmona Esrei. However, the parts of davening that are recited out loud you should say the same as the rest of the shul you are davening with. However, the Maharshdam, Divrei Chaim, Pri HaAretz and Shaar Efraim are of the opinion that one may change his nusach completely to match his new permanent location, just as one who moves permanently from chutz l'aretz to Eretz Yisroel would be allowed to keep one day of Yom Tov.
