The Month of Adar

When the month of Adar arrives we increase our joy. On Purim everyone is required to send no less than two gifts of food to one another “Shalach Manos Ish Liraihu" the more gifts you send the more praiseworthy you are. Nevertheless, it is better to increase our Tzedaka, charity then to have a lavish feast or send extravagant gifts to friends. There is no greater and more glorious joy in the eyes of Hashem then to gladden the hearts of the poor the orphans and widows. Bringing joy and simcha to their lives "Whoever gladdens the hearts of those in need is compared the Shechina, the Divine Presence of Hashem” {Isaiah 57-15}.

Wishing everyone a Chodesh Tov and a Great Week!

Rabbi Yis
