When Adar Starts We Increase Our Joy

When Adar Starts We Increase Our Joy
Day: Sunday
Date: March 2, 2014
Parshat: Vayikra

The Gemara in masechet Taanit says "When Adar starts we increase our joy." In the Megilat Esther it says that "this month switched their worry into joy." Meaning, the month of Adar itself causes good things to happen. Therefore if a Jew must go to court against a non Jew, he should do his best to schedule it during the month of Adar since during this month we have the upper hand. May Hashem listen to our prayers during this month and save us from those who make evil decrees against us and our Torah. Some people have a custom to fast on the seventh day of Adar which is the yahrzeit of Moshe Rabenu. Some also have a nice custom to make a special learning session on the night of 7 Adar in commemoration.

The DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Please visit us online at
