18th of ADAR[/c]
Usual Shabbos service; many say Piyutim; we take out two Sifrei Torah; in the first, we have seven Aliyahs in the weekly Sidrah, Parshas Ki Sisah; Half-Kaddish. In the second Sefer Torah the Maftir reads Parshas Parah in Chukas (Numbers 19:1-22). (Some maintain that the obligation to read Parshas Parah is mandated by the Torah.) The Haftorah of Parshas Parah is read from Ezekiel 36:16-38. We do not say "Kayl Malei" or "Av Harachamim".
