   Personal Planner

    In The Heritage Personal Planner, dates are given according to both the secular and Jewish calendars; and the red-letter days of each calendar are noted. The diary will prove an indispensable tool for anyone who must keep track of appointments or a log of daily accomplishments. Students and teachers can use it for the 2014/2015 school year; rabbis and synagogue officials will find it handy for the year 5775. People and professionals can keep track of appointments, conferences and deadlines.

    Prayers (such as penitential selichos, or relevant psalms) recited on special occasions are listed, along with other information about the daily prayer services, in the margin of the day on which they are recited.

    Candle-lighting times for the Sabbath and Festivals are given — for New York City, on the calendar page; for 66 cities, at the end of the planner. For the second night of a Festival, the candles should not be lit before 45 minutes after sunset (later, in the far northern latitudes; some wait until 72 minutes after sunset in any case). However, if the Festival falls on a Friday, the Sabbath candles should be lit 18 minutes before sunset.

    For many decades, the daily study of a folio page of the Talmud has become extremely popular. This course of study (called Daf Yomi, or page-of-the-day) completes the Talmud in seven and a half years. The daily daf (page) is listed in this diary. During the period covered by this diary, the following tractates of the Talmud will be completed: Moed Kattan (14 Elul/Sept.9, 2014); Chagigah (11 Tishrei/Oct.5); Yevamos (14 Shevat/Feb.3, 2015); Kesubos (7 Sivan/May 25); and Nedarim (8 Elul/Aug.23). Each tractate (volume) is available in The Schottenstein Edition of the Talmud, in both the English and the Hebrew edition

    Also popular is the daily study of two paragraphs of the Mishnah (called Mishnah Yomis, or Mishnah-of-the-day), which covers the entire Mishnah in about five and a half years. The daily lesson is listed in the desk diary. All of the Mishnayos that will be studied during the term of this diary are currently available in The Artscroll Mishnah Series with Yad Avraham commentary, in both the regular and pocket size editions.

    Select readings appear at the beginning and end of each week in this Diary:
(a) a Talmudic aphorism, culled from The Schottenstein Edition of the Talmud; (b) for each Saturday, pertinent laws or an inspirational excerpt from Avi Schulman's Living Life to its Fullest; and (c) a timely thought, related to the week's Torah reading, culled from Rabbi David Feinstein's Kol Dodi on the Haftaros; The Essential Malbim; The Maggid at the Podium; Messages from the Mishnah; Mesillas Yesharim; as well as from various other ArtScroll volumes.
