This Sunday marks an interesting day in our calendar. It is the 14th of Iyar, exactly one month after Pesach. It became a special day when Moses was asked by people who were tamei (spiritually impure) what they could do about offering the Paschal lamb. People who were tamei were not allowed to perform this ceremony. Moses inquired of G-d and was told that they, as well as those who were far away from Jerusalem on Pesach, would be given a second chance on the 14th of Iyar.
We observe this day by not saying Tachanun; and many people eat some matza on that day.
So …… Happy Pesach Sheini !
