Anyone hear of Hashem providing a double portion of manna on Thursday or is it always Friday morning (the 6th day)?
If all sources say that it was on the 6th day, Friday morning, then why do people nowadays say that Hashem provides us double parnassah on Thursday to account for Friday and Shabbat?

There shall be plenty ?? this Thursday in form of snow:- I once heard from a Holocaust survivor, that snow really was ?? onto them, as it was a thirst quencher readily available to them.
Can someone please explain to me why this years big snowstorm is transpiring on exact same date as last years big snowstorm on ?”? ????February 9, 2017 7:48 am at 7:48 am #1215410WinnieThePoohParticipant
“then why do people nowadays say that Hashem provides us double parnassah on Thursday to account for Friday and Shabbat?”
This was something unique to the Mann- double portion of mann was only on Fri- check out the chumash, when Bnei Yisroel came to Moshe on Fri puzzled why their portions measured twice as much as usual.
In terms of parnassa, nowadays we say that Hashem sets our parnassa for the week, if someone was to work on shabbos chas v’shalom, he would not be increasing his earnings. Rather, keeping shabbos keeps us, and brings us bracha in our endeavors.
I’ve seen this in my life. When I was in school, I was quite studious and found it hard to set aside studying on shabbos when I had tons of tests during the coming week. Since we were told that we were allowed to learn school subjects if they were chumash, etc, I would study for tests on those subjects on shabbos. Not technically being mechallel shabbos, but relying on a loop-hole. When I got to college and only had secular subjects, I no longer had the loop-hole and stopped studying at all on Shabbos, and shabbos was wonderful. And I saw the bracha- my grades were even higher than they were in HS for less effort.February 9, 2017 10:13 am at 10:13 am #1215411NechomahParticipant
We get double on FRIDAY to account for Friday and Shabbos. Otherwise you would have to get a triple portion on Thursday in order to account for Thursday, Friday and Shabbos.
We do see the inyan of triple in relation to Shemitta. Because the land lies fallow in the 7th year, during the 8th year, it takes time for the land to be made ready for planting, planted and then harvested, which can take up most of the 8th year, during which time there was no parnassa from the land. Thus, in the 6th year, Hashem promises that he will provide triple to account for the 6th, 7th (Shemitta) and 8th years.February 9, 2017 12:29 pm at 12:29 pm #1215412lesschumrasParticipant
147, snow as a thirst quencher is a common misconception . While it may technically introduce moisture, it does so at very low temperatures. To people already in poor health, thinly clothed and in wintry conditions, snow can lower body temperature to dangerous levelsFebruary 9, 2017 7:13 pm at 7:13 pm #1215413MenoParticipant

Sure, if it works better that way then that’s what I meant
