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.

Sometimes, like the tamei individual who must stay away from the Mikdash, we have our limits and disabilities, and we must remember not to attempt those goals which are beyond our reach.
Such a misunderstanding would render our words worthless, for we would not be declaring that Hashem is truly the Master of the Universe.
Operating the crane is Joe. Joe is overweight and a chain smoker. Another worker approaches Joe and says, “Joe, look at you! 80 pounds overweight, smoking two packs of cigarettes a day. You must do something about your health. Go the gym, work out, and get in shape.”

My ex despises me and is bent on destroying me. He has done everything to torture me.
Rav Akiva Eiger questions why semicha is considered a mitzvas assei she’hazman gramma. While it is true that it must be performed during the daytime, this is not because the semicha per se cannot be performed by night.
Question: When performing a mitzvah, what is more important: doing it right away – “zerizim” – or doing it with a large crowd – “berov am”?
Although the Torah only commands us to pick up the arba minim, the rabbis require that we wave them in all four directions of the compass as well as upward and downward.
Besides the lack of appreciation and understanding on the part of knesset Yisrael, Sefer Vayikra has been derided and held in contempt by the nations of the world and other religions.
