Tefilla Halacha

It’s that Shabbos with the vexing problem again: What to say in bentching of Seudah Shlishis on Shabbos Erev Rosh Chodesh?

  1. Best Option: Don’t eat “pas” (challah, bread, cake) after sheki’ah, and only say “retzei”.
  2. Next Option: If you did eat “pas”, but not past 20 minutes after sheki’ah, only say “retzei”.
  3. If you did eat “pas” past 20 minutes, you have a problem. Aruch HaShulchan says to say only “retzei”, MB says to say only “ya’aleh veyavoh”, or maybe both. So don’t do this. Exercise that self-control muscle that the Chovohs HaLevavohs is always talking about.

As a public service, we will be shortening Minchah by not saying “Tzidkosscho tzedek,” thus enabling everyone to start their seudah shlishis that much earlier.

Tefilla Halacha

Dvar halacha l’kovod Avi Saffer’s aufruf:

A chosson and a kallah need an escort from the chuppah until the end of the sheva berachos week. During this time it is forbidden for them to go outside alone.

Some have the minhag that the chosson does not go outside alone from the aufruf.
