Chapter 140:2
The Four Special Torah Readings

2. On the Shabbos before Purim, we read "Parashas Zachor" (Deuteronomy 25:17-19) (1). On the Shabbos before Rosh Chodesh Nissan, we read "Parashas HaChodesh" (Exodus 12:1-20) (2). If Rosh Chodesh Nissan falls on Shabbos, "Parashas HaChodesh" is read on that day, according to the sequence outlined [for the reading of "Parashas Shekalim"] when Rosh Chodesh Adar falls on Shabbos.

On the Shabbos before [we read] "Parashas HaChodesh" we read "Parashas Porah" (Numbers 19:1-22) (3).

FOOTNOTES:

(1) This paragraph states the commandment to recall the attack of the nation of Amalek which occurred just after the exodus from Egypt.

(2) This paragraph describes the mitzvah the sanctify the new moon and the mitzvah to offer the "Korban Pesach" (Passover offering) on the afternoon of the fourteenth of Nissan.

(3) "Parashas Porah" describes the purification ceremony of those who are ritually impure due contact with a human corpse.
