Mitzvah of Kavod and Simcha on Rosh Chodesh

The Mitzvah of Kavod and Simcha:

Some Poskim[1] rule that one is obligated in the Mitzvah of Kavod [and Simcha[2]] on Rosh Chodesh, just as one is obligated on Yom Tov.


[1] Machazik Bracha 419/2; Ashel Avraham Butchach Tinyana 419; See Rameh Mipuno 79

The reason: As Rosh Chodesh contains an extra ray of the soul similar to Yom Tov. [Chida ibid]

[2] Yireim 227; Or Zarua 453 in name of Yireim; Sefer Hamitzvos Rasag of Rav Perlow Aseh 59 in opinion of Yireim; Siddur Rav Shabsi
