Today is the fast of Asara BeTeves. The fast starts at 5:59 a.m., N.Y.C., E.S.T. At Shacharis the chazzan in his repetition adds Anenu (between Go’el and Rofeh). We say the Selichos for Asara BeTeves. We read from the Torah in Parashas KiTissa-Va’yechal. We call three aliyos to the Torah.

Mincha: we say Ashrei, half Kaddish. We take out the Torah and call three aliyos to the Torah as we did at Shacharis and we again read from Va’yechal. The third aliya serves as Maftir and also reads the Haftara (Isaiah 55), Dirshu Hashem. We all say Anenu in the Shemoneh Esreh in Shema Kolenu. The chazzan in his repetition, however, says Anenu as in the morning, following Go’el Yisrael. At Mincha, no Avinu Malkeinu nor Tachachanun. Fast concludes at 5:15 p.m., N.Y.C. E.S.T. We wait to eat after Friday night Kiddush at the Seudas Shabbos.

Kiddush Levana until Tuesday evening, 15th of Teves.

 

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.

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.
