Shkia, Elevation and Mazel Tov

My DS & DDIL just had their first child. Mazel Tov!

They left our house Shabbat morning to go to the hospital. We switched on our phones after Shabbat and shortly thereafter got a call from DS telling us that BH all is well and the baby boy was born at 6:11 pm.

Now in our family we like to make everything complicated. I went to check my trusty Kaluach (an excellent resource for all halachic times dates etc) Lo and behold when was shkiah - 6:11 pm. So now we have a baby with a shayla re the bris - Shabbat or Sunday?

We went to the hospital and a lively debate erupted among people who have nothing to do with us but of course this is Israel. Somebody says, no shkiah is 6:15. I tell DS call the mohel see what he says. I am not looking forward to a Shabbat bris, on Sukkot nonetheless. (Our shul, like many here, does not have a Sukkah). My DDIL's parents live a 45 minute walk away from our neighborhood.

At first the mohel said Sunday. In the meantime I'm googling away shkiah, Mt. Scopus, elevation and lo and behold I learn that because Mt Scopus (where the baby was born) is at an elevation of over 800 meters, shkiah is indeed 6:15 and not 6:11 as in parts of Jerusalem that are lower.

And indeed the mohel called back and said Shabbat!

At least the mohel lives in the neighborhood Very Happy

So of course the important thing is that the baby is healthy, the mother is healthy and we are all happy. So we arranged catering and are having somebody build a Sukkah at our shul specifically for the Seudat Mitzvah.

I'd also like to put in a plug for Chabad.org which is an amazing resource for everything you ever wanted to know about shkiah, shalom zachor, bris and a multitude of other things.

It's been a very exciting few days. Ken Yirbu Smachot B'Yisrael.
