Lumud Chanukat habayit

At Chanukat habayit (dedication of a new home) a limud is organized. 

The general structure is followed. The table below shows the specific texts. It is based on teffillot da Sola Pool congregation Shearith Israel, NY. A much longer version can be found in ספר חנוכת הבית, printed in the back of ספר שיר אמונים, printed in Amsterdam in 1793. See
