Parshas Behar-Bechukosai / Shabbos Mevarchim

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 Birchas HaChodesh, Av HaRachamim, 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.

No Tzidkascha at Mincha.

We omit Tachanun for the entire month of Nisan.

Rosh Chodesh is Monday and Tuesday.
