Balmy Spring Weather
Spring began in Nisan and on Pesach we stopped saying
morid hagoshem or requesting Hashem vesein tal
umottor livrochoh in Shemoneh Esrei. It is natural
that at such a time we review what last winter brought in its
wake: very heavy rainfall and damage caused by howling winds,
cold, and stormy weather in Europe.

Then From Sinai Were They
"Why are the laws of shmitta associated specifically
with [having been given from] Mt. Sinai? [To teach us that}
just as the laws of shmitta inclusive of their general
rules and particulars were transmitted at Sinai, so were all
the commandments taught at Sinai, inclusive of their general
rules and particular details" (Rashi).
