Friday afternoon

  1. At Mincha on Friday there’s no Tachanun even if one prays mincha Gedolah (six and a half hours). [1]
  2. If one has a meal after midday on Friday should say Shir HaMaalot and not Al Neharot Bavel. [2]

Kabbalat Shabbat

Friday night

  1. In the Bracha of Hashkivenu (השכיונו) on Friday night the Sephardic minhag is that one doesn’t conclude the usual way rather starting from ובצל כנפיך תסתירנו one should add ופרוס סכת שלום עלינו ועל ירושלים עירך ברוך אתה ה' הפורס סכת שלום עלינו ועל כל עמו ישראל ועל ירושלים. [3]
  2. The minhag is to say VeShamru on Shabbat and VaYidaber Moshe on Yom Tov after the Brachot Kriyat Shema before Shemona Esreh. [4]

Saying the weekday Shemona Esreh

Personal requests

  1. One should refrain from making any personal requests in davening on Shabbat unless it is part of the established texts (such as the HaRachaman's in benching). [5]

If one forgot to say Mincha on Friday afternoon

  1. If one forgot to say Mincha on Friday one should say Arvit on Friday night, two Shemona Esrehs of Shabbat, the first one for Arvit and the second as a makeup for Mincha (Tashlumin). [6]
