Shabbos Bulletin Parshas Vayikra 5775

Tefilla Halacha

Shulchan Aruch says that it is a mitzvah to increase one’s seudah on every Rosh Chodesh.

When Rosh Chodesh is on Shabbos:

  • The Bach suggests making the  seudas Rosh Chodesh on Sunday, when Rosh Chodesh is Shabbos.
  • Magen Araham suggests making a really l-o-n-g seudah shlishis, l’kovod Rosh Chodesh.
  • The prevalent minhag is to add a special food to the seudas Shabbos l’kovod Rosh Chodesh.
