This Shabbat is known as "The Great Shabbat" ("Shabbat HaGadol" in Hebrew) — see the 1st (straight from the Warsaw ghetto!), 2nd and 3rd articles.
The 4th article is on the once-a-year blessing over budding/blossoming fruit trees — this can be a nice family activity during the Jewish month of Nissan which began last Thursday.
The last 3, including the story, are for the weekly reading of Tzav.
Next week: special PASSOVER issue.
