(Hakhel) In honor of Rosh Chodesh tomorrow, we provide the following points and pointers relating to Hilchos Rosh Chodesh (Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chaim 217 et al.), as excerpted from the Dirshu edition of the Mishna Berurah:
A. One should wear better clothing than usual on Rosh Chodesh. The Yesod V’Shoresh Ha’avodah writes that one should wear at least one article of clothing which is more chashuv. The G’ra wore his Shabbos hat on Rosh Chodesh.
Notes: (A) It is a ma’aleh to have special clothing for Rosh Chodesh/Chol HaMoed, as both have more Kedusha than a regular weekday as evidenced by thefour aliyos read on that day, as well as the Korban/Tefillas Mussaf of the day. (B) Fascinatingly, the Karbanos for Musaf on Rosh Chodesh match exactly the Karbanos for the Musaf of the Yom Tov of Pesach and of Shavuos [two parim, one ayil, seven kevasim and one seir].

After several public safety incidents and customer service issues, several community members wrote to Walmart to complain. Susan Efroymson has shared a copy of an email from Bill O’Brien, NEO Market Manager in which he offers a number of intended improvements and asked for our community’s feedback. Please review his email and respond accordingly. Susan shared with him that this email would be shared publicly and is offered here with permission. Let’s use this opportunity to make a kiddush Hashem and promote productive dialogue.
Sorry it took so long to get back to you, but I take your complaint serious and had to work the store several days this week to look into the issues and get a plan together to make sure that you and everyone in the area has a great shopping experience in the store. Here are the things that we are doing to get the store back to where it needs to be on a daily basis.
