Spirit of the Law: Purim I: Month of Adar

Kitzur Shulchan Aruch, Chapter 141, 1

From the onset of Adar one should magnify his joy. (Mishenichnas Adar marbim b’simcha.) If a Jew has an altercation with a non-Jew he should take him to court during Adar since it is an auspicious time.

The Ohev Yisrael, zt”l, writes that the word “b’simcha” has the same numerical value as the word “shana,” year.[1] The more b’simcha, joyous, one is during Adar, the more joy one will experience the entire year!

A Heartfelt Plea From Yad Eliezer!


Purim is almost here. And with it comes the incredible Mitzvah of Tzedakah that helps to define us as a nation. On Purim we give money directly to those who are destitute so that they too can enjoy the day and its festivities.

We need your help! We need it to distribute Matanot L’evyonim –
charity to the poor on Purim ; to lift the spirits of the poor, and to allow them a breath of fresh air as prescribed by the Megillah.

Please donate generously. We need it to keep on doing what we do best – caring and feeding those who are the most vulnerable.

In the merit of this Mitzvah, may you be blessed with good health, with happiness and with the continued ability to care.
