The roads of Zion are mournful because no one comes to the appointed season; all her gates are desolate, her priests moan; her maidens grieve while she herself suffers bitterly.

דַּרְכֵי צִיּוֹן אֲבֵלוֹת מִבְּלִי בָּאֵי מוֹעֵד כָּל שְׁעָרֶיהָ שׁוֹמֵמִין כֹּהֲנֶיהָ נֶאֱנָחִים בְּתוּלֹתֶיהָ נוּגוֹת וְהִיא מַר לָהּ:

Hayom Yom:

In the sh'ma before retiring (p. 118): On Shabbat and Festivals we do not say Ribono shel olam or lam'natzei'ach (p. 122). But we do say them on other days that tachanun is not said. After the three paragraphs of sh'ma (p. 120), add the word "emet." Ya'alzu is said once. Hinei and y'varech'cha are said three times. In tikun chatzot do not say lam'natzei'ach...b'vo on days tachanun is omitted.


We do recite the Harachaman of brit mila (p. 95).

(From a sicha at a brit mila repast): At a brit mila we say, "Just as he has entered into the Covenant so may he enter into Torah, into marriage and into good deeds" (p. 141). It is our custom to make an advance payment on tuition fees for the boy's studies. (Here the Rebbe gave a sum of money and said): This is for the Yeshiva.
