    K - a question for the rabbi

    Are you allowed to eat roasted meat (or baked chicken) today or tonight? At the seder we can’t because it “looks” like korbon pessach – the same reason should apply on pessach sheni!

    in Hayom yom of yesterday

    the Rebbe writes to say Tachanun yesterday by mincha, (usually erev yomtov one does not say tachanun)
    bc the main Yomtov of pessach sheni is tonight .the time of bringing the Korban.(as oppose to a regular yomtov that starts the night BEFOER) therefore lichoireh the right zeman of eating matzoh would be today in the evening.

    Also last night

    In the sicha of shabbos shmini 5740 (sichos kodesh, shmini, ois 28) the rebbe says that some don’t eat matzo at all, some eat on the night before pessach sheni, others eat it during the day of pessach sheni and others eat it on the night following pessach sheni. Those who are the most mehadrin eat matzo on these 3 times.

    K - another question for the rabbi

    Can a person fast on pessach sheini? On the 14th of Nisson – it actually is a fast day for bechorim, so is the second pessach more “stringent” in this regard, and fasting is not allowed?
