בעל הנחמות ינחם אתכם
Today it is quite common, for Aveilim who sit Shiva L”A
to place a sign with the Nusach of Nichum Aveilim
so that it should be said properly.
(“Hamakom Yenachem Eschem etc.”)
There are many Toirehs said and published on the
Nusach . (Why the word Hamakom instead of Hashem)
This Nusach is actually nowhere to be found, not in Bavli,
Yerushalmi, Tur , Shulchan Aruch or other Poskim.
The Perishah brings a Nusach that is very close to
this Nusach but it starts with “Hashem” and
The first one to use this Nusach is the Shvus Yakov.
He writes, when there are two Aveilim r”l, one
is Menachem the other and says
המקום ינחם אתכם ואותנו בתוך וכו
