May her neshama enjoy an aliyah in gan eden! Amen.
shabbat shekalim
Shabbos mevorchim Adar ushers in an extended period (until after Pesach) of celebration and simcha. 
On rosh chodesh Adar, Tuesday, and Wednesday, we apply the adage, ”When the month of Adar begins one increases joy!”

In addition to the weekly parsha hashavuah, we lein parshas Shekalim , coins, marking the yearly period when Jews of old were obligated to donate money to the Temple treasury towards communal sacrifices and more.

To commemorate this event, we read the first of four unique Torah readings that introduce iconic religious observances and occasions. 
Men, women, and children are encouraged to attend and hear this special kriah. Although parshas Parah and Zachor are biblically required, it is commendable to hear all four parshios read publicly, in shul.
