Parashas Shekalim

Wednesday, 27th February 2019

Our holy sages, instituted the reading of 4 special "parashiyos - sections of the Torah" in (or near) the month of Adar, as a commemoration of 4 special Mitzvos. 

The first of the "4 Parashiyos" is Parashas Shekalim which falls on this coming Shabbos. This reading can be found in the beginning of Ki Sisa Perek 30 Pesukim 11 thru 16. 

This reading is to commemorate the Mitzvah of "Machatzis Hashekel - the half Shekel coin", which every Jew was obligated to give each year to the special fund from which the daily "Korbanos Tomid - sacrificial lambs" were purchased, that were offered in the Bais HaMikdash - Temple, each morning and evening.  
Although we do not have a Bais HaMikdash today, we "perform" this Mitzvah by reading about it in the Torah.
