Halocho #316 - Special "BeHaB Mi-Sheberach" this Shabbat

On the first "Monday, Thursday and Monday" in the month following Pessach (Iyar) and Sukkoth (Marcheshvan) the custom is to say extra Selichot during Shacharit. (Some communities do this on the last "Monday, Thursday and Monday" of the month. ) Since Monday is "Yom Sheni" or "Yom Bet - ב - and Thursday is "Yom Chamishi" or "Yom Heh - ה - these days are referred to as BeHaB - בה"ב BeHaB will be on this coming Monday, Thursday and again on Monday the following week. Some people have the custom to fast on BeHaB. A special Mi-Sheberach will be recited on Shabbat morning before the Torah is returned to the Aron Hakodesh to bless those who will fast. Answering Amen to the Mi-Sheberach does not oblige one to fast. Source: Kitzur Shulchan Aruch 127:3, 14 Shabbat Shalom, - Danny Thursday, 6 Iyar 5769, 21st day of the Omer
