This coming Tuesday evening and Wednesday, the 14th of Iyar, is Pesach Sheni. Some do not say Tachanun at Shacharis and Mincha, as well as at the Mincha service of the preceding day.

It is customary to eat matza at least at one meal, even with chametz in the house [at the table] – based upon Tractate Pesachim (95a, Mishna), “… On the second (Pesach Sheni) one may have in his house both chametz and matza. The Talmud (ad. loc.) explains this halacha as being derived through exegesis of the Thirteen Principles.)

This coming Motza’ei Shabbos and Sunday is Lag BaOmer – the 33rd day of the Omer – a break in the sorrowful period when we do not cut our hair or rejoice with music. On Lag BaOmer we may cut our hair and hold weddings and other celebrations with music. Being that Lag BaOmer is Sunday we may cut our hair on Friday in honor of the Shabbos. There are various minhagim regarding the exact length and time frame of this mourning period. See Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chayyim 493, where these minhagim are clearly delineated.

 

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. –Y.K.
