Today is Rosh Chodesh Sivan.

Fri. morning: Shacharis with inclusion of Ya’aleh VeYavo in the Shemoneh Esreh, half-Hallel, Kaddish Tiskabbel. We take out one Sefer Torah from the Ark. We read in Parashas Pinchas (Bamidbar 28:1-15), we call four Aliyos (Kohen, Levi, Yisrael, Yisrael). The Baal Keriah recites half-Kaddish. We return the Torah to the Aron, Ashrei, U’va LeTziyyon – we delete Lamenatze’ach. The Chazzan recites half-Kaddish; all then remove their Tefillin.

Musaf of Rosh Chodesh, followed by Reader’s repetition and Kaddish Tiskabbel, Aleinu, Shir Shel Yom, Borchi Nafshi and their respective Kaddish recitations (for mourners). Nusach Sefarad say Shir Shel Yom and Borchi Nafshi after half-Hallel, and before Aleinu they add Ein K’Elokeinu with Kaddish DeRabbanan.

Mincha: In the Shemoneh Esreh we say Ya’aleh VeYavo, which we also add to Birkas Hamazon as well as mention of Rosh Chodesh in Beracha Acharona (Me’ein Shalosh) at all times. Kiddush Levana at first opportunity (we ususally wait until Motza’ei Shabbos).

From Rosh Chodesh until Isru Chag we do not say Tachanun (others extend this practice until the 12th day of Sivan). No Hazkaras Neshamos; we do say Kel Erech Appayim but at the conclusion of Kerias HaTorah we do not say Yehi Ratzon and we do say Lamenatze’ach.

Motza’ei Shabbos is the onset of the 3 days of Hagbala – the preparatory period before Shavuos. According to some minhagim, the same relaxation of Sefira observance that we allow on Lag BaOmer applies to the days before Shavuos as well. See Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chayyim 493, and Mishna Berura (ad. loc.), where the various minhagim are clearly delineated.

Tues. night (candle lighting 7:47 p.m. NYC. E.D.T. – with Shehecheyanu). On the first night of Shavuos we wait with prayers until nighttime to fulfill the Sheva Shabbasos Temimos – the completion of Sefira. Maariv of Yom Tov (some say Yotzros), Shemoneh Esreh of Shalosh Regalim. Kiddush of Shalosh Regalim with Shehecheyanu. It is customary to have a dairy appetizer on Shavuos. The main meal should nevertheless include meat. In Birkas Hamazon at the conclusion of the seuda we add Ya’aleh VeYavo. It is customary to stay awake all night, learn Torah and say Tikkun Leil Shavuos.

                                Wed. morning: Shacharis of Yom Tov (some congregations add the appropriate Yotzros as found in the Machzor), Shemoneh Esreh of Shalosh Regalim, followed by whole Hallel. We then remove two Sifrei Torah from the Ark. We say the 13 Middos. We call the first Aliyah (the Kohen) but before the beracha over the Torah is recited, the Baal Keriah recites Akdamos. To the first Sefer Torah we call five aliyos. We read in Parashas Yisro (Shemos 19:1-20:23) from “Bachodesh Hashelishi” until the end of the Parasha. We then take the second Torah scroll, place it on the bimah next to the first scroll and recite half-Kaddish. The Maftir is read in the second scroll in Parashas Pinchas (Bamidbar 28:26-31) from “U’veyom Habikkurim” until “Ve’niskeihem.” The Haftara is in Yechezkel (1:1-28, 3:12). The Chazzan chants Kah Keli followed by Ashrei, Yehallelu, LeDavid Mizmor etc. and we return the Sifrei Torah to the Ark.

Musaf: Chazzan recites half-Kaddish, then all say the Shalosh Regalim Shemoneh Esreh. In the Chazzan’s repetition the Kohanim go up to duchan. Ein K’Elokeinu, Aleinu, Shir Shel Yom and respective Kaddish recitations. (Nusach Sefarad say Shir Shel Yom after Hallel.)

Mincha: Ashrei, U’va LeTziyyon, half-Kaddish, usual Shalosh Regalim Shemoneh Esreh, Kaddish Tiskabbel at conclusion of Chazzan’s repetition, Aleinu, Kaddish Yasom.

Second day Shavuos: Maariv, usual Tefilla of Yom Tov, Shemoneh Esreh of Shalosh Regalim followed by Kaddish Tiskabbel, Aleinu, Kaddish Yasom, Kiddush of Yom Tov, Shehecheyanu. In Birkas Hamazon at the conclusion of the seuda we include Ya’aleh VeYavo. (Candle lighting not earlier than, 45 min. – 8:52 p.m. N.Y.C. E.D.T.; 60 min. – 9:07 p.m. N.Y.C. E.D.T.; 72 min. – 9:19 p.m. N.Y.C. E.D.T.)

Question: If Abraham was commanded to circumcise his descendants on the eighth day, why do Arabs – who claim to descend from Abraham through Yishmael – wait until their children are 13 to circumcise them? I am aware that this is a matter of little consequence to our people. Nevertheless, this inconsistency is one that piques my curiosity.
