Do we say yaaleh v'yovo or r'tsai or both if one eats today which is Friday rosh chodesh after being mekabel shabbos but before nightfall. Does it make a difference if you finish before or after nightfall.

If you Daven early are you saying Yaale V'Yovo by Maariv?, No! Then why would you say it by bentching? – Gershon Gold May 30 '14 at 16:05
@Gershon Gold I can think of a difference. The maariv t'filla is not part of rosh chodesh. The day is still rosh chodesh and one cant change it by being mekabel shabbos. – preferred May 30 '14 at 16:10

1 Answer 1

If you davened Ma'ariv (early, BeTzibur), then Rosh Chodesh has effectively ended and Kedushas Shabbos has taken over, even if it still daylight outside. Therefore, you bench Retseh (for Shabbos) and not Ya'aleh V'Yavo (for R.H.). See Mishna Berura, 424:2, (on the right hand side), also referencing Magen Avraham, there. Saying both might be considered a stira (contradiction).

If all you did was MeKabel Shabbos (by saying Mizmor Shir...) and you right away made Kiddush, with the intention of davening Ma'ariv later (Bizmana), then consult your L.O.R.

I suggest you edit your source into your answer, as it's integral to it. – msh210 May 30 '14 at 18:21

What if you don't plan on davening maariv? – Double AA May 30 '14 at 20:23
