  1. rc – it says in the article Rosh Chodesh is on Sunday (actually Sunday and Monday – 2 days this month). Yom Kippur Katan is supposed to be erev Rosh Chodesh but seeing as how this month it will be on Shabbat we don’t say tachanun or similar tefilot then (or on Erev Shabbat either) it’s pushed up to Thursday
