This Motza’ei Shabbos (Sunday 2:00 a.m.) we move the clock forward, 1 hour, as we resume daylight savings time.

This coming Motza’ei Shabbos and Sunday (March 9th) is Zayyin Adar, the yahrzeit of Moshe Rabbenu; we do not say tachanun.

This coming Thursday (March 13) is Ta’anis Esther (Purim starts Motza’ei Shabbos, March 15): the fast begins at dawn, 5:59 a.m. NYC E.D.T. For those who experience any problem when fasting, see Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chayyim 686:2, Rema, for leniencies in this regard. Nevertheless, it is always preferable to ask a competent Orthodox rabbi for a ruling.

Shacharis as usual with the following exceptions: In the Shemoneh Esreh repetition the chazzan adds Anenu (between Go’el Yisrael and Rofeh Yisrael). Following the repetition we say special Selichos for Ta’anis Esther,  Avinu Malkenu which is recited by many cogregations, VeHu Rachum, Tachanun and half Kaddish. We take out a Sefer Torah and call up three to read in Parashas Ki Tissa (32:11-14; 34:1-10 – Vayechal) and half Kaddish. We do say Yehi Ratzon and the Shacharis Tefilla then concludes as usual.

At Mincha: Ashrei, then half Kaddish. We take out the Torah scroll and we read again in Ki Tissa (VaYechal), calling up three people; the third aliya also serves as the Maftir, who reads the Haftara from Yeshayahu 55:6-56:9, Dirshu Hashem be’himatz’o. In the Shemoneh Esreh all say Anenu in Shema Kolenu, and in the repetition the chazzan says Anenu between Go’el Yisrael and Rofeh Yisrael (as in Shacharis), followed by “Birkas Kohanim” and Sim Shalom. Avinu Malkenu, Tachanun, Kaddish Tiskabbel, Aleinu, Kaddish Yasom.

It is customary prior to Mincha for each individual to give three coins, each valued at half the monetary unit of the local currency. These are called “machatzis,” in remembrance of the Machatzis Hashekel in the Temple. The fast ends according to Rabbi Moshe Feinstein at 7:41 p.m. E.D.T. (NYC), however one who experiences difficulty may eat at 7:34 p.m. E.D.T. (NYC). According to Rabbi Tukaccinsky (Gesher HaChaim) the fast ends at 7:31 p.m. E.D.T. (NYC)

For Purim see next week’s luach.

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.

“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?
