Halocho #548 - If you forget Ya'aleh Veyavo on Rosh Chodesh

Rosh Chodesh Iyar is on Wednesday and Thursday.

On Rosh Chodesh one should add Ya'aleh Veyavo during the Amida and Birkat Hamazon.

If one forgot to add Ya'aleh Veyavo during the Amida at night one does not need to make amends.

During the day one needs to go back to רצה. If one finished the Amida on needs to repeat it.

If one forgot Ya'aleh Veyavo during Birkat Hamazon (during the day or night), and one remembers before starting the last Bracha, one can say:

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה' אֱלקֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם אֲשֶׁר נָתַן רָאשֵׁי חֳדָשִׁים לְעַמּוֹ יִשְׂרָאֵל לְזִכָּרוֹן

If one only realizes after starting the last Bracha, or one does not have the above Bracha handy, one does not need to make amends.

  1. For your edification, I am at work in front of a computer. I forgot yaale veyavo and remembered before the 4th brocha. My bentcher doesn't have the make-up brocha nor is there a siddur in the office. I typed in some key words into google and found this post, with the nusach of the brocha! Yasher kochacha.

  2. Thanks very much!! This was a lifesaver! A gutten Chodesh.
