This Shabbos is Shabbos Mevorchim Rosh Chodesh Adar Sheni (2 days, Sunday and Monday) and Parashas Shekalim. The molad is Shabbos Afternoon 10 minutes and 8 chalakim (a chelek is 1/18 of a minute) after 3 p.m. (in Jerusalem).

Shabbos – all tefillos as usual with the following exceptions:

Shabbos morning: Shacharis is the usual Shabbos tefilla however following the chazzan’s repetition and Kaddish Tiskabbel, we remove two scrolls from the Ark; in the first we read from the weekly portion of Pekudei and call seven Aliyos, and at their conclusion, being that we now end sefer Shemos, the congregation followed by the reader call out Chazak. We then call the Maftir and read from the second Sefer in Parashas Ki Tissa, from the beginning of the Parasha until Al Nafshoseichem (Exodus 30:11-16). We read the Haftara of Parashas Shekalim, Ben Sheva Shanim (II Kings 11:17-12:17), being that the following day is Rosh Chodesh, some add the first and last verses of the Haftara of Machar Chodesh (I Samuel 20:18, 42). We do not say Av Harachamim, nor is there Hazkaras Neshamos, but we continue with Ashrei; we return the scrolls to the Aron and the chazzan says half Kaddish.

Musaf and Mincha are both the usual Shabbos tefilla, however at Mincha following the chazzan’s repetition of Shemoneh Esreh, due to it being erev Rosh Chodesh – we do not say Tzidkas’cha.

Rosh Chodesh Adar Sheni: Ma’ariv is the usual Motza’ei Shabbos tefilla with inclusion of Ya’aleh ve’Yavo in the Shemoneh Esreh, half kaddish followed by Vi’yehi Noam ve’Atah Kadosh, Kaddish Tiskabel, Alenu followed by mourners Kaddish.

Sunday morning: Shacharis with inclusion of Ya’aleh VeYavo in the Shemoneh Esreh; (no tachanun) following chazzan’s repetition we recite half Hallel, Kaddish Tiskabbel. We take out one Sefer Torah. We read in Parashas Pinchas (Bamidbar 28:1-15); we call up four Aliyos (Kohen, Levi, Yisrael, Yisrael), the Baal Keria recites half Kaddish. We return the Torah to the Aron, Ashrei, U’va LeTziyyon – we delete Lamenatze’ach – the chazzan recites half Kaddish; all then remove their tefillin.

Musaf of Rosh Chodesh, followed by chazzan’s repetition and Kaddish Tiskabbel, Aleinu, Shir Shel Yom, Borchi Nafshi and their respective Kaddish recitals (for mourners). Nusach Sefarad say Shir Shel Yom and Borchi Nafshi after half Hallel. Before Aleinu they add Ein K’Elokeinu with Kaddish DeRabbanan.

Mincha: In the Shemoneh Esreh we say Ya’aleh VeYavo, followed by chazzan’s repetition and Kaddish Tiskabbel, Aleinu and Mourner’s Kaddish.

Birkas Hamazon: In the Grace after Meals we add Ya’aleh VeYavo, as well as mention of Rosh Chodesh in Beracha Acharona (Me’ein Shalosh) at all times.

Sunday night Maariv and Monday, second day Rosh Chodesh, the same as yesterday (no Tachanun nor Yehi Ratzon).

 

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.

Yitzchak thought the Jewish people needed dual leadership: Eisav the physical; Yaakov the spiritual

According to the Sefer Yetzirah, the nature of the month of Kislev is sleep.

Though braggarts come across as conceited, their boasting often reflects a low sense of self-regard

Not every child can live up to our hopes or expectations, but every child is loved by Hashem.

Leaders must always pay attention to the importance of timing.

While our leaders have been shepherds, the vast majority of the Children of Israel were farmers.

Maimonides himself walked and prayed in the permissible areas when he visited Eretz Yisrael in 1165

If a man dies childless, the Torah commands the deceased’s brother to marry his brother’s widow in a ceremony known as yibum, or to perform a special form of divorce ceremony with her known as chalitzah.

Question: My young daughter was recently diagnosed with autism. She does not function well socially and is extremely introverted, but we have noticed that she reacts very well to small animals. We reported this to her therapist who suggested that we get a dog or cat as a pet. We know that most religious people frown upon having pets, but we hate to see our daughter suffer and want to do anything that would make her happy. Would it be okay to own a pet in the circumstances we described?

Ramban interprets Korban as self-sacrifice, each Jew should attempt to recreate Akeidas Yitzchak.

Dr. Schwartz had no other alternatives up his sleeve. He suggested my mother go home and think about what she wanted to do.

Why does Lavan’s speaking before his father show that he was wicked? Disrespectful, yes. Rude, certainly. But a rasha?

We find that in certain circumstances before the Torah was actually given, people were permitted to make calculations as to what would better serve Hashem, even if it were against a mitzvah or aveirah.
