Purim in Toldot Avraham Yitzchak in Mea Shearim
Last week, the Jewish world was entering the new Jewish month of Adar (Rosh Chodesh Adar). Adar is the 12th and happiest month of the Jewish calendar. Simcha, joy, is the symbol of Adar. Joy to serve G – d and that G – d caused so many miracles to happen for the Jewish people (Purim and Pessach) (see the book “Sha’arei HaMoadim” from Chabad).
According to Sefer Yetzirah (The Book of Creation), each Jewish month represents a certain letter, horoscope, organ, sense and tribe:
– The letter of Adar is the KUF ק
– The horoscope is the fish
– The tribe is Naftali
– The sense is laughter
– The organ is the spleen
The ADAR schedule:
Ta’anit Esther – Fast of Esther is taking place on 13 Adar (4 March).
Purim is taking place on 14 Adar (5 March) and Shushan Purim will be on Friday, 15 Adar (6 March).
Chodesh Tov – חודש טוב – Have a great new month Adar !
