This Shabbos is Shabbos Mevarchim as well as Parashas HaChodesh. Rosh Chodesh Nissanis Tuesday (one day). The molad is Tuesday morning, 21 minutes and 14 chalakim (a chelek is 1/18 of a minute) after 6:00 a.m. (in Jerusalem). At Shacharis some say Yotzros in the Reader’s repetition. We take out two Sifrei Torah from the Ark. In the first we read the weekly parasha of Vayak’hel-Pekudei and we call up seven aliyos. Following the recital of half-Kaddish we call up the Maftir and we read in the second Sefer in Parashas Bo (Shemos 12:1-20), from “Vayomer Hashem, Hachodesh hazeh” until “Tochlu matzos.” We then read the Haftara in Ezekiel (45:16-46:18), Kol Ha’am. Before Musaf we bless the new month of Nissan.

   Rosh Chodesh Nissan: Monday evening 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). Following the Shemoneh Esreh, the chazzan recites Kaddish TiskabbelAleinu, Kaddish Yasom.

Tuesday morning: Shacharis with inclusion of Ya’aleh VeYavo in the Shemoneh Esreh, half- Hallel, Kaddish Tiskabbel. We take out one Sefer Torah 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 Lamenatze’ach, the chazzan recites half-Kaddish; all then remove their tefillin.

   Musaf of Rosh Chodesh, followed by Reader’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, and before Aleinu they add Ein K’Elokeinu with Kaddish DeRabbanan.

   Mincha: In the Shemoneh Esreh we say Ya’aleh VeYavo, which we also add to Birkas Hamazon as well as mention of Rosh Chodesh in Beracha Acharona (Me’ein Shalosh) at all times. Kiddush Levana at the first opportunity (we usually wait until Motza’ei Shabbos).

During the entire month of Nissan we do not say the following: Tachanun, VeHu Rachum, the Yehi Ratzon after the Torah reading, Hazkaras Neshamos, Av HaRachamim – but we do say Lamenatze’ach and Kel Erech Appayim before VaYehi Binso’a. We do not eulogize nor do we fast during the entire month.

This Motzaei Shabbos (Sunday morning) at 2:00 A.M., we move the clock forward one hour as we resume daylight savings time.

   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.

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?
