Parshat Hachodesh

Parshat Hachodesh
Day: Sunday
Date: March 17, 2014
Parshat: Shemini, Para
Source: Yalkut Yosef: 685

On the Shabbat immediately proceeding, or the Shabbat of Rosh Chodesh Nisan we again take out and read from two Torah scrolls (if Rosh Chofesh fell out on Shabbat three are taken out). From the second one we read Parshat Hachodesh, which talks about Nissan being the first month of the year. A minor over six years old may be called up for the Aliya of Parshat Shekalim and Parshat Hachodesh, although not for Parshat Zachor and Para. However if a minor was already called up, he may stay and do the berachot but someone else should do the actual reading. One does not need to do shnayim Mikra ve'echad Targum on these four parshiyot.

The DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Please visit us online at
