Halocho #1720 - Ruth and Shavu'ot

This year - 5776 - שָׁבוּעוֹת will be on Sunday.

Outside of Israel שָׁבוּעוֹת will also be on Monday.

It's customary to read מְגִלַּת רוּת on שָׁבוּעוֹת, between הַלֵּל and the קְרִיאַת הַתּוֹרָה.

In Israel, Megilat Ruth will be read on Sunday and in the Diaspora most places will read מְגִלַּת רוּת on Monday.

One has to remember to leave a flame burning (like a Yahrzeit candle or gas range) from before Shabbat so that one can light the Yom Tov candles on Motzai Shabbat - Saturday night after dark.

Chodesh Tov!

Monday, 29 Iyar 5776, 44th day of the Omer

וְנוֹהֲגִין לוֹמַר רוּת בְּשָׁבוּעוֹת 
אָסוּר לְהוֹצִיא אֵשׁ, בֵּין מֵאֶבֶן בֵּין מִזְּכוּכִית (ברענגלאז) בֵּין מֵעֵצִים הַנַּעֲשִׂים בְּגָפְרִית - גַפְרוּר

P.S. Tonight & tomorrow (Tuesday) will be Rosh Chodesh Sivan. Don't forget יַעֲלֶה וְיָבוֹא in בִּרְכַּת הַמָּזוֹן and the שְׁמוֹנָה עֶשְֹרֵה.
