IT’S THAT SHABBOS WITH THE VEXING PROBLEM AGAIN: WHAT TO SAY IN BENTCHING OF SEUDAH SHLISHIS ON SHABBOS EREV ROSH CHODESH:
Here is the Rav’s opinion what to do lema’aseh:
- Don’t eat “pas” (challah,bread,cake) after sheki’ah–and only say retzei.
- If you did so, 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!
We will be hearing a sample shiur at the Shul after the 6 pm mincha– you do not have to worry that the magid shiur will go overtime, as we need to allow time to adhere to the above rules!
Any location that is populated by ten Jews is obligated to appropriate a house where they can congregate for prayer whenever it is time to pray. This place is called a Beis Haknesses.(Rambam, Hilchos Tefillah, 11:1)
Many of us could pull ten men together and hold a Friday night minyan or a Megilla reading in our homes; but even if we could pull the ten holiest Jews alive into our minyan, the Kedusha of the Minyan would not approach the holiness of a Beis Haknesses.
