Torah it up X3!

Thursday, 4 April, 2019 - 8:45 pm

This week we take out three Torahs! One for Parshas Tazria, one for Rosh Chodesh Nisan and one for Hachodesh!

As this Shabbat falls on the 1st of Nissan, a special reading called "Hachodesh" (Exodus 12:1-20) is added to the regular Shabbat Torah reading and in addition to Rosh Chodesh Torah reading. Hachodesh recounts G-d's historic communication to Moses in Egypt on the 1st of Nissan (2 weeks before the Exodus) regarding the Jewish calendar, the month of Nissan and the Passover offering. (Links: The Reading for Hachodesh, From the teachings of the Chassidic masters on Hachodesh, About the Jewish calendarHaftorah in a Nutshell)

Mazel tov to Rabbi Chaim's brother Shmuly & Hayley Lazaroff on their marriage this past week in Israel! It was amazing to celebrate with the whole family together in the Holy Land. A great time was had by all.

"First Fridays" will therefore be celebrated this month on the first Friday of Nisan (instead of the April), with Israel Shabbat: a report from Rabbi Chaim, Chanie and kids from the Holy Land!
