This morning, I took my cat Jerry to the vet in order to get neutered. I know that this isn’t necessarily a topic for Parashat Beshalach but, as far as I know, the ancient Egyptians were the first ones domesticating cats. 🙂
Nevertheless, this Shabbat starts tomorrow evening at 4.36 pm. Havdalah is at 5.50 pm and Rabbeinu Tam is at 6.24 pm. The times given apply to Jerusalem !
Parashat Beshalach includes only ONE Mitzvah: “The Prohibition to go beyond the Techum (boundary) on Shabbat”.
As a matter of fact, I am preparing an article on this Mitzvah and hope that I am either going to publish it today or tomorrow. Furthermore, I am writing on the third and last part of the mini series on the conversion to Judaism of minors and fetuses.
If you are in Jerusalem this Shabbat: The weather will be nice and relatively warm ! In comparison to New York. 🙂
