Till Pesach

1.      Shabbat Hachodesh (See also Adar point 6):

  1.  If Rosh Chodesh Nissan is on a weekday then on the preceding Shabbat two sefarim are used, the first for the weekly parasha (seven) and the second for the Maftir of Shabbat Hachodesh with only one Kaddish between the two sefarim.

  2. If Rosh Chodesh Nissan is on Shabbat three sefarim are used: the first for the parasha (six) and the second (7th or mashlim) for Rosh Chodesh. For the Maftir the third sefer is used reading “החודש הזה”. Kaddish is said after the 2nd and 3rd sefer. The Haftarh for Shabbat Hachodesh is read, followed by the first and last line of the Haftarh for Rosh Chodesh, השמים כסאי.

2.      The whole month Techinot are not read.

3.      At the end of the weekdays Shacharit, the “עץ חיים” lines (tefillot, page 225) are replaced by three verses from Shir Hashirim. The chazzan start with “יונתי בחגוי הסלע”, followed by any line and ending with “היושבת בגנים”. All Avelim (mourners) say Kaddish.
If there is a honra (Shivah) these verses are replaced by the צידוק הדין etc. (page 214-217).

4.       Shabbat Hagadol evening: the chazzan sings the Kaddish before Barechu (tefillot, page 86). The Kaddish before עלינו (tefillot, page 121) is a communal song using the melody of Shabbat Nachamu, where the middle lines (יהא שלמא) and the ברכו are recited by the chazzan.

5.      Shabbat Hagadol Shacharit:

  1. The chazzan sings the Kaddish (tefillot, page 125) & Kedusha (tefillot, page 133)

  2. After the Kaddish Titkabal before the parasha the Chazzan recites the שלוש פעמים (tefillot, page 227) and adds the Mi Shebeirach with offertas (כפי ערך הקצוב) for the festivals.

  3.  If new Parnassim were elected, this is announced (“eleitos”) after the Hashcavot, followed by a Mi Shebeirach for those who resigned and those who joined.

  4. After assigning the Mitzvot (assigning the honors), Hashcava is said for Ishac de Pinto
    מה רב .... המשכיל ונבון החסיד העניו שהשתדל בטובת הקהל הקדוש הזה ה'ה'ה'ה'

  5.  Haphtarah (always): וערבה לה', the last verse הנה אנוכי is repeated.

  6. If Pesach starts on Sunday, the Shabbat Hagadol specials ‎a till ‎d above are brought forward to the Shabbat before Shabbat Hagadol. Only the haphtarah is done on this Shabbat Hagadol.

6.       Unless Pesach starts on Shabbat, after Arvit, “שובה” is skipped, staring with “אורך ימים”, and so the word ששת in the הבדלה is skipped.

7.      Shacharit in the morning before Pesach מזמור לתודה (tefillot page 36) is not read.
