A group of artisans designated by God begin building the Mishkan and its vessels. Pekudei (“Accountings Of”) is the final Torah reading in the Book of Exodus.

Shabbat Mevarchim Chodesh Nisan

Saturday, March 18

Molad Nisan: Wed, 24 minutes and 12 chalakim after 1:00



Shabbat HaChodesh 2023 / שַׁבָּת הַחֹדֶשׁ 5783

Shabbat before Rosh Chodesh Nissan 🕍

Shabbat HaChodesh for Hebrew Year 5783 begins at sundown on Friday, 17 March 2023 and ends at nightfall on Saturday, 18 March 2023. This corresponds to Parashat Vayakhel-Pekudei.

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.).
