Halocho #64 - Erev Rosh Chodesh

Today - Thursday - is Erev Rosh Chodesh of Adar II. Some have the custom of fasting on the eve of Rosh Chodesh. Many have the custom of adding the Yom Kippour Kottan prayers during Mincha. All this to repent and atone for sins done during the month bygone. Tachanun is not said at Mincha today. Tonight one starts adding Ya'aleh Veyavo into the davening (prayers) and bentching (grace after meals); forgetting to do so at night does not require amendment. Source: Kitzur Shulchan Oruch 97:1
