Shabbat Zakhor/Mi Khamokha, is the Sabbath preceding Purim. Judah HaLevy's poem, "Mi Khamokha" is read Saturday at 9:00 am. Deut. 25:17-19, beginning "Zakhor ‘Remember [Amalek],’” is added to the regular Parashah reading," because Haman was presumed a descendant of the tribe of Amalek, the first "annihilators" of Israel.

Shearith Israel’s “Omer Board” dates back to the Mill Street Synagogue of 1730, and may indeed go back to the early years of the Congregation’s history.
