This coming Tuesday, the 17th of Tammuz, is the Fast of Shiv’a Asar Be’Tammuz. The Fast commences in the morning at 4:25 a.m. N.Y.C., E.D.T. and concludes at 9:01 p.m., N.Y.C., E.D.T. (3 small stars – Rav Tukaccinsky; Later zman – Rav Moshe Feinstein – 9:06 earliest or 9:15 for one who has no difficulty fasting).

This fast marks the beginning of the mourning period for the destruction of our holy Temple in Jerusalem and our dispersion in the exile. There are numerous minhagim regarding this period of mourning that are found in Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chayyim siman 551 – Hilchos Tisha B’Av – see Ba’er Heitev. All these rules culminate with the completion of Tisha B’Av (the following morning, the 10th of Av, after noon – chatzos hayom).

   Shacharis: usual tefilla with the addition of the beracha Anenu between the berachos of Go’el Yisrael and Rofeh Cholei Amo Yisrael – by the Ba’al Tefilla in his repetition only. Following the repetition all say the Selichos and Avinu Malkenu as found in the Siddurim. We remove the Sefer Torah from the Ark and we call three Aliyos and read in Parashas Ki Tissa (Shemos 32:11-14, 34:1-10) Vayechal. We then conclude Shacharis as usual.

   Mincha: we beginwith Ashrei, followed by half Kaddish as usual; we then remove the Torah scroll from the Arkand we call three Aliyos and [again as in the morning]read in Parashas Ki Tissa (Shemos 32:11-14, 34:1-10) Vayechal. The last aliya serves as Maftir, and reads from Yeshayahu (55:6-56:8) Dirshu Hashem Be’himatz’o. Upon returning the Torah to the Aron the Ba’al Tefilla says half Kaddish – all say Anenu within the Beracha of Shema Kolenu, as found in the Siddur. In the silent Shemoneh Esreh we also substitute Sim Shalom for Shalom Rav as the text of the beracha of Shalom (only according to Nusach Ashkenaz – since most of those who follow Nusach Sefarad always say Sim Shalom at Mincha.) In the Ba’al Tefilla’s repetition (as during Shacharis), Anenu is a separate beracha between Go’el and Rofeh. Birkas Kohanim is recited as well, concluding with Sim Shalom. Following the Shemoneh Esreh all say Avinu Malkenu – Tachanun, and then the Ba’al Tefilla says Kaddish Tiskabbel followed by Aleinu and mourner’s Kaddish.

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?
