Word of the Month


Molad of Elul is Tuesday night; first opportunity for Kiddush L’vana according to Minhag Yerushalayim (from 3 days after the molad) is Motza’Sh Shoftim, August 10th, the eve of the 5th of Elul. Additionally, many others will also say KL then, because they specifically say it on Motza’ei Shabbat. Those who wait for a full seven days after the molad will have their first op on Tue night after 10:41pm or wait until Wed night. Some will say it earlier on Tue night, being close enough to the 7 day mark. Different opinions.
