פעם אחת

פעם אחת                                       

The Mechaber in Shulchan Aruch (O.Ch. 685:7) writes :

"Some say that reading Parshas Zachor & Parshas Parah are Min Hatorah".

The Mishna Verurah writes that many Achronim argue and hold Parshas Parah is not Min Hatorah.


Tosfos (Brachos 13a & Megilla 17b) enumerates the times when Kerias Hatorah is Min Hatorah.
The original Girsa in Tosfos had Parshas Para as a Keriah Mideorysa.

The Maharshal removed from Tosfos "Parshas Parah"  and says it was  mistakenly put in.


The Mekor Baruch (R.Baruch Epstein z"l) writes it's possible the mistake came about 
by Tosfos saying Parshas Zachor is Deorysa פ"א Tosfos meant. to read Parshas Zachor פעם אחת  once a year. People mistakenly thought it meant פרה אדומה
