Thursday night, Friday and Friday night, Shabbat are the two days of Rosh Hodesh.
Shabbat is Parshat Noach.
The Halacha corner - when Rosh Hodesh comes on Shabbat
We add יעלה ויבוא into the Shabbat standing (Amidah) prayers and into Grace after Meals.
We say half Hallel, we take out two Torah scrolls.
In the first we call up seven in parshat Noach and in the second we read for Maftir from Pinchas "and on the Sabbath day"
We read the modified Mussaph Amidah אתה יצרת "You created".
The wellsprings of the Torah - מעינה של תורה
By Alexander Zusha Friedman - 1897-1943
Berashit - Noach 6:11 ותשחת הארץ לפני האלהים ותמלא הארץ חמס
"and the earth was corrupted before G-d and the earth was filled with violence"
When man is corrupted before G-d, and there is no fear of Heaven in matters between man and G-d,
then the earth will be filled with violence - also with matters between a man and his fellows.
Since without fear of heaven there can't be any humanity (normal social behaviour).
From our traditions.
If you want to be notified when I put up a new chapter of the Kitzur, or a new drosha or whatever, why not drop me a line mail to Yona Newman and I will email you with the news.
The linear translation of Genesis includes the text and commentaries such as Rashi.
The Kitzur Shulchan Aruch is a concise version of the laws that govern the day to day life of a religious jew.
My translation into English is a Linear one, that is I try to keep to the Hebrew text order and phrasing, because my objective is to help people who want to learn in Hebrew, even though this sometimes makes the English less flowing.
Explanations on the methods used in the translations and graphics presentations, what to do if you don't see the Ivrit (Hebrew) text correctly, some suggestions for how best to learn using this material, and how to get in touch with me for more help or to give your comments or criticism - Help
