This Shabbos is Shabbos Mevorchim. Rosh Chodesh Adar Rishon is two days, Sunday and Monday.

This Shabbos all tefillos as usual. There is no Hazkaras Neshamos and at Mincha we do not say Tzidkascha. The molad is on Saturday evening, 34 minutes and 15 chalakim (a chelek is 1/18 of a minute) after 10:00 p.m.

Rosh Chodesh, Motzaei Shabbos at Maariv we add Ya?aleh VeYavo. However if one forgets to include Ya?aleh VeYavo (at Maariv only), one does not repeat. (See Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chayyim 422:1 on Berachos 30b explains that this is due to the fact that we do not sanctify the month at night. Following the Shemoneh Esreh, the chazzan recites Kaddish Tiskabbel – we do not say Vi?yehi Noam and Ve?ata Kadosh (some then say Havdala in the Synagogue) followed by Aleinu an Kaddish Yasom (Mourner?s Kaddish).

Sunday morning: Shacharis with inclusion of Ya?aleh VeYavo in the Shemoneh Esreh, half Hallel, Kaddish Tiskabbel. We take out one Sefer Torah. We read in Parashas Pinchas (Bamidbar 28:1-15). We call four Aliyos (Kohen, Levi, Yisrael). The Baal Keriah recites half Kaddish. We return the Torah to the Aron, Ashrei,U?va Letziyyon – we delete Lamenatzeach, the chazzan recites half Kaddish; all then remove their tefillin.

Musaf of Rosh Chodesh, followed by Reader?s repetition and Kaddish Tiskabbel, Aleinu, Shir Shel Yom, Borchi Nafshi and their respective Kaddish recitals (for mourners). Nusach Sefarad say Shir Shel Yom and Borchi Nafshi after half Hallel, and before Aleinu they add Ein K?Elokeinu with Kaddish DeRabbanan.

Mincha: In the Shemoneh Esreh we say Ya?aleh VeYavo which we also add to Birkas Hamazon, as well as mention of Rosh Chodesh in Beracha Acharona (Me?ein Shalosh) at all times.

Sunday evening and Monday, 2nd day Rosh Chodesh, the order of the day is the same as yesterday. Kiddush Levana at first opportunity (from 3rd evening after the molad), Tuesday evening, until the (entire) evening of Motzaei Shabbos, 14th Adar Rishon.
The following chapters of Tehillim are being recited by many congregations and Yeshivos for our brothers and sisters in Eretz Yisrael: Chapter 83, 130, 142.

Contrary to popular belief, the Talmud never explicitly limits the ban on footwear to leather shoes.

On Sunday, Jews will be refraining from food and drink from dawn until sunset to commemorate the Fast of Gedaliah. Following Nebuchadnetzar’s destruction of the First Temple and exile of most of the Jews, the Babylonians appointed Gedaliah ben Achikaam as governor of Judea. Under Gedaliah’s leadership, Judea and the survivors began to recover. On […]

As we enter the Days of Awe, we must recognize that it is a joy to honor and serve true royalty.

On Rosh Hashanah we are taught that true self-analysis involves the breaking down of walls

When we hear the words “Rosh Hashana is coming” it really means Hashem Himself is coming!

Who am I? What are the most important things in my life? What do I want to be remembered for? If, as a purely hypothetical exercise, I were to imagine reading my own obituary, what would I want it to say? These are the questions Rosh Hashanah urges us to ask ourselves. As we pray […]

We recently marked the thirteenth anniversary of 9/11 – that terrible day when the symbols of man’s power and achievement crumbled before our eyes and disappeared in fire and smoke. For a very brief moment we lost our smugness. Our confidence was shaken. Many of us actually searched our ways. Some of us even learned […]

Why am I getting so agitated? And look how we’re treating each other!

While women are exempt from actually learning Torah, they are obligated in a different aspect of the mitzvah.

Question: I recently loaned money to a friend who has been able to repay only part of it. This was an interest-free loan. We exchanged a signed IOU, not a proper shtar with witnesses, since I have always trusted her integrity and only wanted a document that confirms what was loaned and what was repaid. Now that shemittah is approaching, what should I do? Should I forgive the loan? And if my friend is not able to repay it, may I deduct the unpaid money from my ma’aser requirement?

We must eat, sleep, work, and care for our dependants. How much time is left over after all that?

Once we recognize that our separation from God is our fault, how do we repair it?

Chatzitzah And Its Applications
‘Greater Stringency Applies To Hallowed Things…’
(Chagiga 20b-21a)

To choose life, you must examine your actions in the period preceding the Days of Awe as an unbiased stranger, and render your decision.
