Shnayim Mikra Ve’echad Targum

The Rebbe regularly encouraged the reading of the weekly parsha with Targum as recorded in Shulchan Aruch. Rabbi Raphael Tennenhaus recalls when the Rebbe brought it up during yechidus.

At the Shabbos Bereishis farbrengen of 5712 (1951), the Rebbe related that on Shabbos Bereishis the Tzemach Tzedek would be recite the Shnayim Mikra Ve’echad Targum particularly at length.

“This was because the entire year follows the course of action taken on this Shabbos,” the Rebbe explained.

Reb Raphael Tennenhausshliach in Broward County Florida, relates:

My birthday is in Shevat, and in the years 5730 to 5734 (1970-1974), I merited a birthday yechidus during the week before my birthday. In total, five birthday yechidusin.

In three of those years, my birthday fell out on a Friday. During those years, the Rebbe told me to be particular with reciting the Shnayim Mikra on Friday afternoon.
