About the event

We will discuss that week's Torah parashat and other related topics.

 Parashat Shmini 5784 / פָּרָשַׁת שְּׁמִינִי

6 April 2024 / 27 Adar II 5784

Parashat Shmini is the 26th weekly Torah portion in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading.

Torah Portion: Leviticus 9:1-11:47; Exodus 12:1-20

Shemini (“Eighth”) opens with the consecration of the Mishkan (Tabernacle). Two of Aaron’s sons are consumed by a fire sent from God when they attempt to offer a “strange fire.” God describes the animals, birds, and fish that are permissible and prohibited for consumption, as well as some laws of ritual purity.

Shabbat HaChodesh 2024 / שַׁבָּת הַחֹדֶשׁ 5784 Shabbat before Rosh Chodesh Nissan 🕍

Shabbat HaChodesh for Hebrew Year 5784 begins at sundown on Friday, 5 April 2024 and ends at nightfall on Saturday, 6 April 2024. This corresponds to Parashat Shmini.

Shabbat HaChodesh (“Sabbath [of the] month” שבת החודש) precedes the first of the Hebrew month of Nisan during which Passover is celebrated. Exodus 12:1-20 and the laws of Passover. On the first day of Nisan, G-d presented the first commandment of how to “sanctify the new moon” (kiddush hachodesh) for the onset of Rosh Chodesh and thus Nisan becomes the first month of the Jewish year (counting by months.).
