Today, the 2nd day of Yom Tov, is Simchas Torah.

Friday morning: Shacharis – as yesterday, Shalosh Regalim. The kohanim ascend to the duchan during the chazzan’s repetition of the Shacharis Shemoneh Esreh. (The Levi’im, or where there are no Levi’im, the firstborn, wash the hands of the kohanim before the chazzan reaches Retzeh. We do not say Vesei’arev, we do not say Ribbono Shel Olam or Yehi Ratzon. Chazzan and congregation continue with whole Hallel. Chazzan concludes with Kaddish Tiskabbel.

Those who are so honored each read aloud a pasuk in Ata Horeisa – and then we remove all the Sifrei Torah from the Ark.  We now begin the Hakafos circling of the bimah – we go around it seven times in joyous dance.At the conclusion of Hakafos we read in Parashas Vezos HaBeracha (Devarim 33:1 – 33:26). We divide the parasha into five aliyos, and we continuously call people (some congregations set the Sifrei Torah at different tables and read from each in order to assure in a quicker fashion that all have their aliyos ) – repeating the order of the keriah many times until all members of the congregation have been called.

We then call the individual who was honored with Chassan Kol Hane’arim. He recites the berachos with all of the children present under the canopy (or tallis). He is followed by the Chassan Torah, who completes the year’s Torah reading (from Devarim 33:27-34:12) to the end of Parashas Vezos HaBeracha.

We call the Chassan Bereishis, who reads from Parashas Bereishis (Bereishis 1:1-2:3). Following the hagbaha and placing the Sifrei Torah on the bima, the ba’al keriah recites half-Kaddish.

We finally call the Maftir who reads from Parashas Pinchas (Bamidbar 29:35 – 30:1) and also reads the Haftara (Yehoshua 1:1-18).

We then say Ashrei and Sissu vesimchu beSimchas Torah; many add Hiskabtzu and Agil Ve’esmach.

We now return the Sifrei Torah to the Ark and the chazzan recites half-Kaddish.

Mussaf: in both the silent Shemoneh Esreh and the chazzan’s repetition, the tefilla is for Shalosh Regalim – all references, again, are to Shemini Atzeres. We do not duchan at Musaf, as we had already done so during Shacharis. Chazzan then concludes with Kaddish Tiskabbel. This is followed by Ein KeElokeinu, Aleinu, Shir Shel Yom (some congregations add An’im Zemiros) and the respective Kaddish recitations.

Mincha: Ashrei, U’va LeTziyyon, Shemoneh Esreh of Shalosh Regalim. Everything follows as yesterday.

                        As today is also erev Shabbos and we had made an Eruv Tavshilin prior to Yom Tov, we make all necessary perparations for Shabbos during Yom Tov prior to Shabbos. We must take care, as opposed to Yom Tov, to light Shabbos candles – from an existing flame – not later than the times listed for each locality (5:47 p.m. E.D.T., N.Y.C.). Negligence in this regard can lead to an Issur de’Oraitha – a Biblical violation.

This Shabbos,  Shabbos Bereishis, is Shabbos Mevarchim, Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan is two days – this coming Friday and Shabbos. The molad is Thursday morning, 52 minutes and 15 chalakim (a chelek is 1/8 of a minute) past 6:00 a.m. (in Jerusalem). All Shabbos tefillos as usual except we do not sayTzid’kosecha.

We do not say Tachanun until after Rosh Chodesh (2 Marcheshvan).

Rosh Chodesh, Thursday eve: At Maariv we add Ya’aleh VeYavo. [However, if one forgot to include Ya’aleh VeYavo (at Maariv only) one does not repeat (Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chayyim 422:1, based on Berachos 30b, which explains that this is due to the fact that we do not sanctify the month at night].

Friday Morning – see next week’s luach.

The following chapters of Tehillim are being recited by many congregations and yeshivas for our brothers and sisters in Eretz Yisrael: Chapter 83, 130, 142 –Y.K.

“Keeping” Shabbos means to guard it and make sure to keep every aspect and detail of it.

Pesach is a time when we can grow in this perspective. But merely spending a week working on something will not leave any lasting impression on us.

Morah for a parent is connected to shemiras Shabbos because the Shechina shines on, and through, the Sabbath.

“You shall not hate your brother in your heart; you shall reprove your fellow and do not bear a sin because of him.” – Vayikra 19:17   When the Torah mentions the obligation to rebuke a fellow Jew, it ends with the words “and do not carry a sin because of him.” The Targum translates […]

The Bais Halevi answers that we must properly define what is considered to be “in the middle of a mitzvah.”

They had realized they would be far from civilization and kosher food and had packed plenty of fresh and canned food as well as making sure there was a microwave in their room which they knew how to kasher.

He was deeply saddened by the thought of her going to her final resting place alone and that it appeared as if she knew no one and had no family who cared about her.

Question: If Abraham was commanded to circumcise his descendants on the eighth day, why do Arabs – who claim to descend from Abraham through Yishmael – wait until their children are 13 to circumcise them? I am aware that this is a matter of little consequence to our people. Nevertheless, this inconsistency is one that piques my curiosity.

Question: What if someone forgot to count sefirah Thursday evening but only realized after he finished davening Friday evening? The catch is that he accepted Shabbos early so that it is still light outside. Can he still count for Thursday evening and then count for Friday night with a berachah once it gets dark?
