The evening of 11-March-13 was Rosh Chodesh Nisan, New Years for Kings and Festivals http://israelvisit.co.il/beged-ivri/shekel.htm
In Exodus 30:11-16 it was ordained to give a half-shekel worth of pure silver as tax for maintenance of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem.
This year we used Jerusalem's new light rail train to fulfill the mitzvah.
