Shabbos Zachor (the Sabbath of remembrance), is next Shabbat, which is the Shabbat immediately proceeding Purim. Our weekly Torah reading is supplemented with the Zachor ("Remember!") reading in which we are commanded to remember the evil of Amalek and to eradicate it from the face of the earth. This is our once a year opportunity to get rid of the evil in our lives. The Nesivos Shalom says this is one of the holiest Shabbos of the year.
In today's shiur, Raize discusses why is it so important to read the Masechet Amalek (eradicating Amalek) and why we dedicate an entire Shabbos to it.
Our learning today is dedicated to Moshe Rabbeinu as his yahrzeit is observed on 7 Adar. Moshe, the greatest teacher to our people. Moshe Rabbeinu who continues to serve on high on behalf of us as he did during his lifetime on earth. There is no nobler enterprise than teaching others, and so we also acknowledge our very own beloved teacher in this world, Raize Guttman, who celebrates her birthday this week. Ad Meah V'esrim!!
