Halocho #333 - Today is Yom Hameyuchas

Today - in they year 2449 - a few days before Matan Torah, Hashem informed us that we're a chosen nation:

וִהְיִיתֶם לִי סְגֻלָּה מִכָּל-הָעַמִּים, כִּי-לִי כָּל-הָאָרֶץ (Shmos 19:5)

As a result, today is often referred to as the Pedigree-Day; Yom-Hameyuchas.

No Tachanun is said during the first part of Sivan; until Isru-Chag Shavu'ot (or a week later - depending on local custom).

- Danny Monday, 2 Sivan 5769, 46th day of the Omer

Please daven for a complete recovery for Tamar bat Naama - תמר בת נעמה
