Tefilla Halacha

On Shabbos Rosh Chodesh (Sunday is also Rosh Chodesh, so you can relax about seudah shelishis),at the first 2 meals, if one begins the fourth berachah and realized that he forgot:

  • Retzei: Go back to the beginning of bentching
  • Yaaleh v’Yavo: Continue bentching

The reason is that the only reason one is obligated to eat bread (which is what necessitates going back to the beginning) is because it is Shabbos, not because it is Rosh Chodesh.
