This week is Shabbat Shekalim and 2 Torah Scrolls are taken out.

First we read the regular Torah Reading – Parshat Pekudei, after which we will say “Chazak” concluding Sefer Shemot.

We then read the beginning of Parshat כי תשא (Shemot Ch. 30, verses 11-16) in the second Sefer Torah.
This is followed by the Haftara for Shekalim from Melachim-2 Ch.11

Shabbat Shekalim reminds us of the half-Shekel that everybody donated yearly to finance the daily sacrifices in the Bet Hamikdash, may we merit to see it rebuilt, speedily in our days.
