my yeshiva does behabOctober 15, 2015 12:45 am at 12:45 am #1105835Sam2Participant
I know several people. Why do you ask?October 15, 2015 1:55 am at 1:55 am #1105836the plumberMember
By “does behab” you probably mean that the tzibbur does behab, because no individual actually does it.
Most of the velt is burnt out of selichos alreadyOctober 18, 2015 12:19 am at 12:19 am #1105837147Participant
BeHaB is not for another 2 weeks:- 2 & 3 weeks from this Monday & 2 weeks from this coming Thursday.October 18, 2015 12:50 am at 12:50 am #1105838the plumberMember

I am sure the Shomer Shabbos Shul in Boro Park will have a number of minyanimOctober 18, 2015 3:35 am at 3:35 am #1105840147Participant
The Jekkish practice in marCheshvon is to observe BeHaB the last 2 Mondays in MarCheshvon with the intervening Thursday, so “the plumber” what I said was correct.
1) Because as days get shorter, it makes fasting a shorter amount of time.
2) The Mabul commenced marCheshvon 17th, and observing last 2 Mondays in marCheshvon, makes marCheshvon 17th, the earliest possible date that Sheni Kamo can come out on.
3) It simulates Mishna in Taanis when 1st Taanis in case rain did not fall was be marCheshvon 17th.October 21, 2015 1:54 am at 1:54 am #1105841Student of TorahParticipant
what if the first Monday of behab is not 17 cheshvon?October 21, 2015 3:59 am at 3:59 am #1105842Sam2Participant
I believe the main Beis at YU says Slichos, if that’s what you’re asking.October 21, 2015 8:46 am at 8:46 am #1105843Geordie613Participant
We had this discussion 3 years ago about the minhogim of when Behab is ‘done’.
In England, the minhag in London is the Jekkisch minhag, other places say it earlier.
But I do find many places are opting out of saying these slichos. I can’t think why it has suddenly become ‘optional’. I was speaking to the Rav of a shul that is officially minhag Hamburg, and they stopped saying it when many people started davening elsewhere on those days. In the case of Yom Kippur Kotton it is only recent that it has become widespread. But Behab is a very old minhag. Does anyone have anything on this?October 21, 2015 8:59 am at 8:59 am #1105844Geordie613Participant
Regarding the OP, many places are now saying Yom Kippur Koton especially before Elul. It is often surprising which minyonim say it. For example in Gateshead, (a few years ago, I’m not sure what the current situation is) the only regular YKK minyan was in the Boarding School/Mechina l’Yeshiva.
