This Shabbat is a liturgical variety of flavours. I encourage you to attend shul to witness a service like nothing you have ever seen before.

Three Torahs will be utilized - The weekly Torah portion (Miketz), the last Aliyah for Shabbat Rosh Chodesh, and the Maftir Aliyah for Shabbat Chanukah (Day #6).

Special insertions in the Shacharit Amidah - Ya'aleh V'Yavo for Rosh Chodesh. Al Ha'Nisim for Chanukah (Also in Musaf).

A special Haftarah - For Shabbat Chanukah (Some append the opening and closing verses from the Shabbat Rosh Chodesh Haftarah at the end).

Three special Psalms - for Shabbat, Rosh Chodesh, and Chanukah.

A completely different Musaf Amidah text - for Shabbat Rosh Chodesh.

A full Hallel - for Chanukah (and including Rosh Chodesh)

I invite you to experience, learn, and enjoy the various liturgical flavours for this coming Shabbat/Rosh Chodesh/Chanukah.

Shabbat Shalom, Chodesh Tov, and Chag Urim Sameach,

Rabbi Howard Morrison
