[1] The Shabbat before the first of Adar is Shabbat Shekalim (Sabbath of Shekels) in remembrance of the commandment for all male Hebrews to contribute half a shekel for maintenance of the Tabernacle. The custom is to read from Exodus 30 and 2 Kings 12, which tell of the commandment and its application in the First Temple period. Shabbat Shekalim is observed in preparation for Purim. This is in addition to the customary Rosh Chodesh (New Moon) reading of Numbers 28:9-15.
