This Shabbos is Shabbos Mevarchim, Rosh Chodesh Sivan is 1 day, Friday; the molad is Friday morning, 48 minutes and 16 chalakim (a chelek is 1/18 of a minute) past 7:00 a.m. (in Jerusalem). Shabbos Morning: After Yekum Purkan we do say Av Harachamim, however, no Kel Moleh.

This Tuesday eve. and Wednesday, the 28th of Iyar, is Yom Yerushalayim.

Rosh Chodesh, Thursday eve. – At Maariv we add Ya’aleh VeYavo. However, if one forgot to include Ya’aleh VeYavo (at Maariv only) one does not repeat (Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chayyim 422:1, based on Berachos 30b, which explains that this is due to the fact that we do not sanctify the month at night). After the Shemoneh Esreh the chazzan recites Kaddish Tiskabbel followed by Aleinu, Sefiras HaOmer and Kaddish Yasom.

From Rosh Chodesh until Isru Chag we do not say Tachanun (others extend this practice until the 12th day of Sivan). Before taking out the Sefer Torah we do say Kel Erech Appayim. At the conclusion of Kerias HaTorah we do not say Yehi Ratzon nor Hazkaras Neshamos, though we do say Lamenatze’ach.

Next Motzaei 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..

The following chapters of Tehillim are being recited by many congregations and Yeshivos for our brothers and sisters in Eretz Yisrael: Chapter 83, 130, 142. – Y.K.
