Chodesh Tov!

Today is Rosh Chodesh Iyar. Some months have a two-day Rosh Chodesh, with the first day of Rosh Chodesh actually being the last day of the previous month and the second day of Rosh Chodesh being the first day of the new month. The current Rosh Chodesh is a two-day Rosh Chodesh, and it will still be Rosh Chodesh tomorrow (until sunset).

The extra prayers and Torah reading make the service longer, which means that, on a work day, we have to start earlier. One of the wiseguys at my "kaddish minyan" joked that, since this is a two-day Rosh Chodesh, tomorrow morning would be another "red-eye special." :)
