This Shabbos is Shabbos Mevarchim, we bless the new moon. Rosh Chodesh Iyar is 2 days, Wednesday and Thursday.
The molad is Tuesday afternoon, 38 minutes and 10 chalakim (a chelek is 1/18 of a minute) past 4:00 p.m. (in Jerusalem). Rosh Chodesh Iyar (first day), starts Tuesday evening.
Maariv: we add Ya’aleh VeYavo; if one forgot to say Ya’aleh VeYavo, at Maariv only, one does not repeat (see Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chayyim 422:1 – based on Berachos 30b – explains this as due to the fact that we do not sanctify the new month at night, and this rule applies even when Rosh Chodesh is two days).
Wednesday morning; Shacharis: usual tefilla with inclusion of Ya’aleh VeYavo in the Shemoneh Esreh, half-Hallel, Kaddish Tiskabbel. We take out one Torah scroll. We read in Parashas Pinchas (Bamidbar 28:1-15), we call four Aliyos (Kohen, Levi, Yisrael, Yisrael), the ba’al keriah recites half-Kaddish. We return the Torah to the Aron, Ashrei, U’va LeTziyyon – we delete La’menatze’ach. Chazzan says half-Kaddish, all then remove their tefillin.
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.
Wednesday eve. and Thursday, 2nd day Rosh Chodesh, the order of the day is the same as yesterday. Kiddush Levana at first opportunity (we usually wait until Motza’ei Shabbos).
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.
