This Shabbos is Parashas Parah, it is also Shabbos Mevorchim Hachodesh Nissan. Rosh Chodesh is next Shabbos (1 day). The Molad is Thursday evening 33 minutes and 2 chalakim (a chelek is 1/18 of a minute) after 9 pm (in Jerusalem). At Shacharis some say Yotzros in the Reader’s repetition. We take out two Sifrei Torah from the Ark. In the first we read the weekly Parasha of Vayak’hel-Pekudei and we call up seven Aliyos. Following the Ba’al Keriah’s recital of half-Kaddish we call up the Maftir and read in the second scroll from the beginning of Parashas Chukas (Bamidbar 19:1-22) until “Ad ha’erev” (there are some who are of the opinion that this reading is De’Oraisa). Musaf as usual; there is no Hazkaras Neshamos or Av HaRachamim, but we do say Tzidkas’cha at Mincha.


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.

Rabbi Yaakov Nagen, a Ram at Yeshivat Otniel, notes that the verse is suggesting that retelling the story of the Exodus is so important that Hashem is performing ever-greater miracles specifically so that parents can tell their stories to future generations.

Approximately 18 years ago, my uncle called me into his office saying he had an urgent matter to discuss. I didn’t know what he had in mind.

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.
