This Shabbos is Shabbos Mevarchim and we bless the New Moon. Rosh Chodesh Elul is 2 days, Tuesday and Wednesday. The molad is Tuesday evening, 2 minutes and 1 chelek (a chelek is 1/18th of a minute) past 10:00 p.m. (in Jerusalem).

Shabbos: All tefillos as usual, but we are not mazkir neshamos, nor do we say Av HaRachamim.

Rosh Chodesh Elul (first day) starts Monday 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 – which 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).

Tuesday morning Shacharis: usual tefilla with inclusion of Ya’aleh VeYavo in the Shemoneh Esreh, half-Hallel, Kaddish Tiskabbel. We take out one Torah scroll from the Ark. 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.

Mussaf of Rosh Chodesh, followed by Chazzan’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. Before Aleinu they add Ein Ke’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.

Tuesday eve. and Wednesday, 2nd day Rosh Chodesh, the order of the day is the same as yesterday. We also begin in the morning after Shacharis (after Shir Shel Yom) and then again in the evening after Maariv to say the psalm Mizmor LeDavid Hashem Ori. Nusach Sefarad say it after Mincha. This morning we also start the blowing of the shofar.

The Sefardic – Spanish, Portuguese, Mediterranean and Oriental – communities also start the recital of Selichos on the 2nd day of Rosh Chodesh. Ashkenazim wait (this year) for the Saturday night (after midnight) immediately before Rosh Hashana. All continue saying Selichos through erev Yom Kippur. 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: Chapters 83, 130, 142. – Y.K.

Her first tactic was tefillah; she immediately began to recite one perek after another of Tehillim.

When a miracle occurs that transcends nature, Hashem has broken the laws of nature to create the miracle.

“How could you have expected my glasses to be there?” argued Mr. Weiss. “You shouldn’t have to pay.”

Rather than submit to this fate and suffer torture and humiliation, Shaul decided to fall on his sword.

How can the Da’as Zekeinim say this was Hashem’s plan to allow them to become the Torah Nation? We know it was actually a punishment.

Rabbi Yaakov Nagen, a Ram at Yeshivat Otniel, notes that the verse is suggesting that retelling the story of the Exodus is so important that Hashem is performing ever-greater miracles specifically so that parents can tell their stories to future generations.

Approximately 18 years ago, my uncle called me into his office saying he had an urgent matter to discuss. I didn’t know what he had in mind.

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.
