This is Shabbos Zachor, we do not say Av Harachamim during davening. According to some opinions it’s a biblical requirement to hear the reading of “remember what Amalek did” in Shul.

NO GUARANTEES, but if you’re available for a minyan for reading the Megilla Wednesday night, please let Bob or me know.

The Parshah in a Nutshell


Leviticus 1:1–5:26

Gd calls to Moses from the Tent of Meeting, and communicates to him the laws of the korbanot, the animal and meal offerings brought in the Sanctuary. These include:

• The “ascending offering” (olah) that is wholly raised to Gd by the fire atop the altar;

• Five varieties of “meal offering” (minchah) prepared with fine flour, olive oil and frankincense;

• The “peace offering” (shelamim), whose meat was eaten by the one bringing the offering, after parts are burned on the altar and parts are given to the kohanim (priests);

• The different types of “sin offering” (chatat) brought to atone for transgressions committed erroneously by the high priest, the entire community, the king or the ordinary Jew;

• The “guilt offering” (asham) brought by one who has misappropriated property of the Sanctuary, who is in doubt as to whether he transgressed a divine prohibition, or who has committed a “betrayal against Gd” by swearing falsely to defraud a fellow man.
