Vayehi Noam

Saying Vayehi Noam by Maariv of Motzei Shabbos:[1]

Whenever Pesach, or any Yom Tov, falls on a weekday the paragraph of Vayehi Noam which is normally said after Shabbos, is omitted.

 

Q&A

If Pesach falls on Shabbos, is Vayehi Noam recited on the Motzei Shabbos prior to it?

Yes.[2] However some Poskim[3] rule it is not recited.


[1] 295/3

[2] So is implied from Admur 295/3, and so rules: Peri Megadim 295 M”Z 2; Poskim brought in Sharreiy Teshuvah 295/2; M”B 295/3;

The Chabad Custom: Rav Yaakov Landau writes in his diary that the Rebbe Rashab would recite Vayehi Noam in such a case, and so is recorded to be the custom of the Rebbe. [Kitzur Halachos 293 footnote 9] However in the Luach Kolel Chabad they write that it should not be said. See Nitei Gavriel Pesach 1, and Otzer Minhagei Chabad Nissan.

[3] Sheialas Yaavetz 19 brought in Shaareiy Teshuvah 295/2; Kaf Hachaim 295/7; Minchas Shabbos 96/7; Luach Tuchinskiy writes that so is the custom in Eretz Yisrael; They say that it should not be said when Pesach falls on Shabbos, as Erev Pesach is considered a holiday, being that its forbidden to do work from Chatzos.
