Halocho #65 - Shabbos and Rosh Chodesh

Rosh Chodesh Adar-2 is today (Friday) and tomorrow. It's a Mitzva to have a bigger meal on Rosh Chodesh. When Rosh Chodesh is on Shabbos one should add an extra dish to the regular Shabbos menu. Reminder: Shabbos is Parshas Shekolim. We will take out 3 Sifrei Torah for the Shachris Torah Reading in Shul: - The first for the weekly Sedra; Pekuday, after which we will say "Chazak" concluding Sefer Shemos. - The second for Rosh Chodesh, after which the Kaddish is said. - The third for Parshas Shekolim; we'll read about the half-shekel that everybody donated yearly to finance the daily sacrifices in the Beis Hamikdosh, may we merit to see it rebuilt. A shul that only has 2 Sifrei Torah will re-use the first one for the 3rd reading. Sources: Kitzur Shulchan Aruch: 97:2, 139:25, 140:1 Chodesh Tov and Shabat Shalom, - Danny

סעיף ב - מצוה להרבות בסעודה בראש חודש, ואם חל בשבת יעשה תבשיל אחד יותר מבשאר שבתות.
