Baltimore, MD  - Apr. 24, 2016 - This Shabbos, Achron Shel Pesach, there will be a special Mincha Minyan at Khal Ahavas Yisroel Tzemach Tzedek, 6811 Park Heights Ave. at 7:00 pm for those returning to Eretz Yisroel next week. The entire parshas Achrei Mos will be lained. 

The last day of Pesach in Eretz Yisroel is Friday, so on Shabbos they will lain Achrei Mos while in Chutz La'aretz we will lain the Yom Tov laining in the morning and not lain the complete parshas Achrei Mos until next Shabbos. This Shabbos at Mincha instead of laining Achrei Mos until just Sheni (as will be done throughout chutz la'aretz), this special minyan will complete the entire parsha.  This will allow those returning to Eretz Yisroel to hear the entire Achrei Mos as next Shabbos they will lain parshas Kedoshim in Eretz Yisroel. [There will also be a special Mincha minyan next Shabbos - check BJL next Friday for the schedule.]

Chutz La'retz and Eretz Yisroel will lain different parshios for over three months until chutz la'aretz "catches up" on the 2nd day of Av (in early August) by laining both Matos and Maasei.
