The Shabbat preceding (or on) Rosh Chodesh Nisan is called Shabbat HaChodesh.
We take out two Sifrei Torah; seven Aliyahs in the first Sefer Torah from the weekly Sidrah — Vayakhel Pekudei; Half-Kaddish; the Maftir reads in the second Sefer Torah from Parshat Bo (Exodus 12:1-20).
The Maftir, starts with the first Mitzva given to the Bnei Yisroel, while they were still in Mitzrayim, even before the Mitzvot of the Yom Tov Pesach (Passover festival) - the Mitzva of Kiddush Hachodesh (the sanctification of the new moon). The reading begins with the declaration that the Hebrew month of Nisan, and not Tishrei, is to be considered the first month of the year. The passage then continues with some of the mitzvot of Pesach / Passover, which are certainly appropriate to be read and studied as the holiday approaches.
HAFTORA :(Additional portion, from Prophets, which is read after the Parsha):
Ezekiel 45:16-46:18. (Ashkenazim);
Shabbat Mevarchim Chodesh Nisan
Rosh Chodesh - Thursday, March 23, 2023
