Rosh Chodesh Tammuz is 2 days, this Friday Night and Shabbos and Sunday.

Friday night: Kabbalas Shabbos and Maariv as usual with inclusion of Ya’aleh VeYavo   (However, if one forgot to include Ya’aleh VeYavo – at Maariv only – one does not repeat: see 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.)

Shabbos morning: Shacharis is the usual Shabbos tefilla with inclusion of Ya’aleh VeYavo in the Shemoneh Esreh as well as in chazzan’s repetition, followed by half Hallel, Kaddish Tiskabbel. We remove two scrolls from the Ark; in the first we read from the weekly portion of Chukas and call seven Aliyos, and at their conclusion we say half kaddish. We then call the maftir and read from the second Sefer in Parashas Pinchas, “U’Veyom HaShabbos U[b]eroshei Chodsheichem”. We do not say Av Harachamim, nor is there Hazkaras Neshamos, but we continue with Ashrei; we return the scrolls to the Aron and the chazzan says half Kaddish.

      Musaf: Instead of Tikkanta Shabbos we say Ata Yatzarta, and in the Korbanos – the sacrifices – we mention both Shabbos and Rosh Chodesh; after chazzan’s repetition, Kaddish Tiskabbel followed by Ein K’Elokeinu, Aleinu, Shir Shel Yom, Borchi Nafshi and their respective Kaddish recitals (for mourners). Nusach Sefarad say Shir Shel Yom and Borchi Nafshi after Shacharis.

      Mincha is usual Shabbos tefilla. We include Ya’aleh VeYavo in the Shemoneh Esreh – we do not say Tzidkas’cha. Ma’ariv is the usual Motza’ei Shabbos tefilla, we include Ya’aleh VeYavo in the Shemoneh Esreh.

Sunday morning: Second day Rosh Chodesh Tammuz. Shacharis with inclusion of Ya’aleh VeYavo in the Shemoneh Esreh, half-Hallel, Kaddish Tiskabbel. We take out one Sefer Torah. 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 La’menatze’ach, the chazzan recites half Kaddish; all then remove their tefillin.

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

      Mincha: In the Shemoneh Esreh we say Ya’aleh VeYavo, followed by chazzan’s repetition and Kaddish Tiskabbel, Aleinu and Mourner’s Kaddish.

      Birkas Hamazon: In the Grace after Meals we add Ya’aleh VeYavo as well as mention of Rosh Chodesh in Beracha Acharona (Me’ein Shalosh) at all times.

 

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

Question: I recently loaned money to a friend who has been able to repay only part of it. This was an interest-free loan. We exchanged a signed IOU, not a proper shtar with witnesses, since I have always trusted her integrity and only wanted a document that confirms what was loaned and what was repaid. Now that shemittah is approaching, what should I do? Should I forgive the loan? And if my friend is not able to repay it, may I deduct the unpaid money from my ma’aser requirement?
