==Parshat HaNesiyim==
# During the first 13 days of Nissan, there is a nice minhag, for the first 12 days to read the Parsha of the Nesiyim for that day (found in Bamidbar 7), and on the 13th day to read the first four pesukim of Parshat Bahalotcha. <ref>Shulchan Aruch HaRav 429:15, Kaf HaChaim 429:22, Chazon Ovadyah (pg 3), Mishna Brurah 429:8 . However, the Aruch Hashulchan (429:7) writes that on the 13th day of Nissan, one should begin a few pesukim ealier, from "Vezot chanukat" (Bamidbar 7:10) </ref> The minhag is to read it from a chumash. <Ref> Perisha YD 270:7 writes that since nowadays writing down Torah SheBaal Peh is treated as though it’s permitted and that we don’t learn from nuances in the text, one shouldn’t degrade the holiness of a [[Sefer Torah]] to learn from it, but rather one should learn from a sefer. Chazon Ovadyah ([[Pesach]] pg 4) argues that this is only according to the Shach’s explanation of the Rosh that nowadays there’s no mitzvah to write a [[Sefer Torah]] and the primary mitzvah is to write sefarim. However, according to the Bet Yosef’s explanation of the Rosh that even nowadays there’s a mitzvah to write a [[Sefer Torah]], then it seems one may learn from a [[Sefer Torah]] and there’s no issue of degrading its holiness. He supports this from the Radvaz 3:529 who recommends reading [[Shenayim Mikrah]] from a [[Sefer Torah]]. Chazon Ovadyah (pg 3) concludes that the minhag is to read it from a chumash. </ref> 
==Maot Chitim==
# It’s proper to give Maot Chitim, [[charity]] to the poor in order that they have money for [[Matzah]] on [[Pesach]]. <Ref>Rama 429:1. Mishna Brurah 429:6 and Shaar Hatziyun 429:10 emphasizes the significance of the obligation. </ref>
