Coronavirus: Halachos for Tefillos Shabbos B’yechidus [UPDATED – PDF]

Note: The following was certified by Harav Moshe Hamburger of the Lakewood Bais Hora’ah.

1. Friday night /Leil Shabbos Kodesh when davening at home the Bracha Meiyn Sheva (normally recited in shul by the shliach tzibur after the recital of Vayechulu after Shmoneh Esrei) is not recited, however many poskim maintain that just the paragraph “Magen Avos” until the words Zecher Lema’ase Breishis, may (and should) be recited even b’yechidus [standing].

2. Shabbos morning* the Parsha & Haftorah is lained from a Chumash. (This laining serves as one of the two times for the obligation of Shnayim Mikra V’echad Targum.)

*Please note : due to the fact that we are davening b’yechidus without a minyan , it is certainly preferable to daven Shachris k’vasikin with the Shmoneh Esrei being recited by Netz (Netz Hachamah this Shabbos morning in Lakewood is 6:57 am).

3. There are varying opinions in the poskim (and therefore differing minhagim) as to the recital of the first Yekum Purkan when davening b’yechidus (the Shaarei Ephrayim [10:26] writes to say it, the Mishnah Berurah [101:19] says not to. However all agree that the second Yekum Purkan and the Mi Shebeirach that follows it is not recited when davening b’yechidus (since it pertains to the tzibbur).

4. One should daven/recite Rosh Chodesh bentching – Rosh Chodesh Nissan is Thursday. The Molad for Chodesh Nissan is Tuesday morning 10:14 am + 11 chalakim.

5. Shabbos Mincha “v’ani tefilasi etc.” is recited (even though there is no laining from a Sefer Torah).
