Rosh Hashanah/Haazinu 5775 Bulletin

Tefilla Halacha

R’ Shlomo Zalmon zt”l is quoted in Halichos Shlomo as saying that when Rosh Hashanah starts a shemittah year, a person should have kavana when saying the shehecheyanu berachah, for shemittah as well. Shemitta is a mitzva which comes periodically, and thus shehecheyanu is appropriate. One has in mind the mitzvohs of shemitta that he/she will be keeping.
