Adar - A Time to Rejoice

Today begins the month of Adar. The Talmud teaches that from the beginning of Adar, we increase in joy. This is because Purim falls on the 14th and the 15th of the month, and Purim is the day Haman had wanted to destroy the Jewish people and instead was transformed from sadness to joy. The Megillah stresses that the dread that preceded Purim and they joy that came affected the entire month. This in understood through the teachings of Chassidut that every month is imbued with a different reflection of Hashem’s name. Nevertheless, the stress on the month is specifically Adar.

The Mitzvah to rejoice in Adar carries with it a tremendous blessing. There is a verse in the Megillah “These days of Purim shall be remembered and enacted. The Baal Shem Tov explains that through proper remembrance, Hashem reenact the blessings of the day. Particularly in a time like ours, when many people need difficulty to be transformed to joy, this blessing is pertinent and critical.

How do we reach joy?

Focus. We must focus on all of the blessings we have and thank Hashem for them. We must share good news and seek good news from others. Our thoughts are the first emanation of our souls, which are bound to Hashem. When we radiate positive energy, we bring positive energy. The focus on good leads us to becoming more productive and opening new channels. Focus can be on many things: the gift of life, our special bond to Hashem through Torah, the blessings we have in friends and family, the freedoms and opportunities we have in religion and life. Gratitude is the greatest form of humility.

Faith. Hashem watches over each one of us. He provides us what we need rather than what we think we need. All of His acts are part of the grand scheme of Moshiach’s coming which is the ultimate good for all of us and each of us. We see this in the Megillah. What seemed to be the darkest hour of the Jewish people with no hope for a future was in fact the eve of tremendous blessings, joy and success. We are placed in this world to trust Hashem. When we truly rely on Hashem and accept that what we perceive as negative is truly good, the hidden good becomes revealed.

Action. Seek opportunities to enjoy and spread joy. This year is a Hakhel year, a year of gathering. When we rejoice with others, sharing in their joy and them sharing in ours, it multiplies the joy and blessings. This is reflected in the Mitzvot of Purim, sending gifts of food to friends and charity to the poor and having a festive meal. Pre Purim parties are a great way to set the tone, particularly if we use them to maximize the people who share in the Mitzvot of Purim. The study of Torah brings joy. Host a Torah class at your home. Each of us can be a beacon of joy and thereby breaking the cycle of negativity and ushering in a period of joy and prosperity.

May Hashem speedily in this Adar grant the greatest joy with the coming of Moshiach!

Chodesh Tov,

Rabbi Biggs
