IT’S THAT SHABBOS WITH THE VEXING PROBLEM AGAIN—WHAT TO SAY IN BENTCHING OF SEUDAH SHLISHIS ON SHABBOS EREV ROSH CHODESH:
- Don’t eat “pas” (challah,bread,cake)after sheki’ah–and only say retzei.
- If you did, but not past 20 minutes after sheki’ah,only say retzei.
- If you did eat “pas” past 20 minutes, you have a problem.Aruch haShulchan says only retzei, MB says only ya’aleh veyavoh or maybe both. So don’t do this. Control yourself!
To accommodate everyone,we will be shortening Minchah by not saying “Tzidkosscho tzedek,” thus enabling everyone to start their seudah shlishis that much earlier.
(Of course, the boys eating seudah shlishis with the Rav will be receiving a special dispensation for this Shabbos.)
One is not allowed to enter a Beis K’nesses or Beis Medrash for his own, mundane, purposes. For a dvar mitzvah, though, it is allowed. But according to a pesak of Rav Nissim Karelitz Sh’lita, as cited in the sefer Mishkan Dovid (a sefer on dinei Beis K’nesses), this does NOT include a case where you are doing the mitzvah of, say, calling someone to come outside because someone outside wants them (although you are doing a mitzvah of gemilas chassodim), since the ultimate purpose is a secular, mundane one.
