The new moon is the perfect opportunity to pray for the renewal of the Davidic Kingdom. (Maharsha, Chidushei Aggadot Bava Metzia 85b)


One should have a Seudah – a festive meal – on Rosh Chodesh. (Ran, Shabbat 24) One should recite the blessing over two challot. (Kaf Hachaim, Orach Chaim 419:4)


“On each Rosh Chodesh, just as on every Shabbat, the souls of those in Gan Eden are raised to a higher level.” (Zohar, Volume 1: 23b) It is customary to light candles in memory of the deceased and to perform Mitzvot in their merit.
