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.

Does Hashem ever go away and not pay attention to us?

In other words, the Torah is an expression of the Way that we must follow in order to live a divine-like life and to bond in the highest way possible with God or Being Itself.

The Chasam Sofer answers that one of only prohibited from wearing a garment that contains shatnez if he does so while wearing the garment for pleasure purposes.

The avodah (service) of the kohen gadol is vital and highly sensitive; the world’s very existence depends on it.

Moreover, even if the perpetrator of the capital offense is never actually executed, such as when the fatal act was unintentional, Kam Lei applies and the judge cannot award damages.

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.
