Welcome to our special Shabbat HaGadol issue.
This is the first full week of the Jewish month of Nisan, and the seventh day is Shabbat HaGadol, "THE Great Shabbat" — read all about it in the first 3 articles, and the 7th).
The 4th article is on the once-a-year blessing over budding/blossoming fruit trees — this can be a nice family activity during the Jewish month of Nissan which began last Thursday.
The last 3, including the story, are for the weekly reading of Tzav.
Next week: special PASSOVER issue.
