Parshas Vayetze

davening at home

Friday Night:

Omit Borchu. After Shemoneh Esreh of Maariv, do not recite the section following Vayechulu.

Shabbos Day:

Omit Borchu. We do not recite any of the Sefer Torah service or Yekum Purkan but proceed directly to Birkas HaChodesh, Ashrei and Shemoneh Esreh of Mussaf.


While one is not required to read the Torah readings from a Chumash in private, it is a worthy action.
