This Shabbos is Shabbos Mevarchim. We bless the new month of Teves. Rosh Chodesh is two days, Tuesday and Wednesday. The molad is Tuesday morning, 58 minutes and 5 chalakim (a chelek is 1/18 of a minute) after 12:00 a.m. (in Jerusalem).

 

This is Shabbos Chanukah as well. Friday night we light the Chanukah candles first, and then the Shabbos candles. We use larger candles or more oil to assure that these candles, which we lit earlier, remain lit at least a half hour after shekia.

Following Shacharis we recite whole Hallel. We then take out two Sifrei Torah: in the first we read from Parashas VaYeshev, we call up 7 aliyos. We then place both Sifrei Torah on the bimah and recite half Kaddish. Following the Hagbaha, we read the Maftir in Parashas Naso, from Vayehi Beyom Chalos Moshe (Bamidbar 7:42-47). Haftarah same as above. We do not say Av Harachamim. Otherwise the order continues as usual, with the exception of the inclusion of Al Hanissim in the Mussaf Shemoneh Esreh. We conclude the service with Mizmor Shir Chanukas Habayis. Mincha: usual Kerias Hatorah, then we add Al Hanissim in the Shemoneh Esreh. At Maariv we say Vi’yehi Noam. Motza’ei Shabbos, in shul we first light Chanukah candles, then Havdala. At home the order is reversed.

 

The order of the day for Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (the last day of Chanukah) is the same as in last week’s luach.

 

Rosh Chodesh: Monday evening, Tuesday morning and evening and Wednesday morning and at Mincha in the afternoon  we add Ya’aleh VeYavo as well as Al Hanissim.

 

Wednesday, Dec. 4, at Maariv, we begin saying VeTen Tal U’matar in Birkas Hashanim of the Shemoneh Esreh. If one forgot to say Tal U’matar – the seasonal request in Mevarech Hashanim – see Kitzur Shulchan Aruch, Hilchos Tefilla, for all laws, as to which places in the Shemoneh Esreh one may, bedi’avad; post facto; as a last resort; include this request and not have to repeat the full Shemoneh Esreh.

Next Friday is the fast of Asara BeTeves. See next week’s luach.

 

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.

It’s an interesting idea, that love is illustrated by understanding another’s needs.

“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.

“There is a diamond necklace that I wear on special occasions,” Mrs. Miller told her husband. “It was recently appraised at $6,000. If need be, we can give that as collateral.”

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?
