[Those of you who also subscribe to the daily Torah Thought may recognize this from there - but the idea represented here is also a matter of Jewish law.]

Since today (Tuesday) is the 1st of Adar:

"When the month of Adar enters, we increase our joy!"

(Talmud, Taant 29a)

Adar represents joyous redemption, born unexpectedly out of the depths of despair - even though it has been building for a long time, with a Divine plan. We see this in the Purim story, but it is reflected in other Adar-related themes as well (stay tuned for more in this week's derashah in shul...)

Have a great day,
