The End of the Month Of Adar


To hold many joyous farbrengens in the days following Purim

As we find ourselves at the end of the month of Adar, during which time we have “increased in joy” from the beginning of the month, we must use the remaining days of the month to continue in greater measure with farbrengens of simcha as a continuation of the days of Purim, reaching the joy of “ad d’lo yada,” increasing from day to day.

(Sichas 23 Adar, 5750)


At the end of Adar – more of an effort to bring the Redemption

The task of hastening the Redemption is emphasized even more at the end of the month of Adar (and this year, at the end of Adar II). The end of Adar follows the days of Purim, when the preparations for Pesach begin. In other words, it is the period between the Redemption of Purim and the Redemption of Pesach, as the Gemara says, “We connect one Redemption to the other Redemption.” Therefore, this is an especially auspicious time to further hasten the true and complete Redemption through Moshiach Tzidkeinu...even before the end of the month of Adar.

The lesson from Parshas Para

We must learn a lesson from Parshas Para in correcting an attitude. This applies to strengthening the avoda of chukas ha’Torah (the laws of Torah that apparently defy logic), in two directions: ratzo and shuv. The proper attitude is that both fulfilling the positive commandments and passive avoidance of sin become one.

In addition to strengthening your own Divine service, you should increase your influence on others in this way. This includes those who (in your estimation) are outside all the camps, who need great support cleaving to the living G-d through the Torah of life and through mitzvos, about which it is said, “and live with them.”

This should be done particularly with ahavas and achdus Yisroel, l’mishmeres (for a preservation). [This is referring to the fact that these efforts] do not just relate to this generation, but to all the generations that have come before ours and that will follow ours.

(Sichas Shabbos Parshas Tzav, 5749)


The lesson of ahavas and achdus Yisroel from Parshas Para

We learn an amazing lesson about the unity of the Jewish people. Each Jew must know and remember that for the sake of the purity of one Jew, Hashem commanded in His eternal Torah to place a mishmeres (preservation) of the ashes of all the red heifers of the previous generations, back to the first heifer of Moshe Rabbeinu. This emphasizes the unification of the individual with all the Jewish people of all generations.

This unity is expressed not only in spiritual matters, but also in material things, such as ashes, the lowest strata of physicality, after the heifer is no longer alive, and after it is burned and nothing remains but ashes. The unity of all the Jewish people throughout the generations is expressed in these ashes, which remains as a mishmeres, so that they [the Kohanim] can sprinkle them (after mixing them with “living waters”) on any individual Jew.

Contemplating this further strengthens the feelings of closeness and unity among Jews, including the yearning between a man and his fellow.

(Sichas 22 Adar II, 5749)


Arousing the yearning for Melech HaMoshiach

[There is a point that needs to be mentioned] until we merit the true unity of all Jews of all generations, from Moshe’s generation, when the first red heifer was prepared, until the generation of Melech HaMoshiach, who will prepare the tenth heifer. There must be a further arousal of true longing for Melech HaMoshiach (similar to the feeling of yearning between man and his fellow). As the Rambam writes, in addition to the belief in the coming of Moshiach, one must also await his coming… “I believe…in the coming of Moshiach, etc.” [is not enough]; there must also be, “I await him every day that he come.” Each day one must await and anticipate Moshiach’s coming.

(Sichas 22 Adar II, 5749)
