Shabbat Zachor / שַׁבָּת זָכוֹר

Shabbat before Purim 🕍

Shabbat Zachor for Hebrew Year 5783 begins at sundown on and ends at nightfall on . This corresponds to Parashat Tetzaveh.

Shabbat Zachor ("Sabbath [of] remembrance שבת זכור) is the Shabbat immediately preceding Purim. Deuteronomy 25:17-19, describing the attack by Amalek, is recounted. There is a tradition from the Talmud that Haman, the antagonist of the Purim story, was descended from Amalek. The portion that is read includes a commandment to remember the attack by Amalek, and therefore at this public reading both men and women make a special effort to hear the reading.
