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.

There is a great debate as to whether this story actually took place or is simply a metaphor, a prophetic vision shown to Hoshea by Hashem.

One does not necessarily share the opinions of one’s brother. One may disapprove of his actions, values, and/or beliefs. However, with brothers there is a bond of love and caring that transcends all differences.

Question: Should we wash our hands in the bathroom with soap and water, or by pouring water from a vessel with handles three times on each hand alternatingly? I have heard it said that a vessel is used only in the morning upon awakening. What are the rules pertaining young children? What is the protocol if no vessel is available? Additionally, may we dry our hands via an electric dryer?

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.
