Rosh Chodesh Adar

Updated: Feb 9, 2022

The Daily Halacha Moment - Rosh Chodesh Adar🎭

״כל השונה הלכות בכל יום - מובטח לו שהוא בן העולם הבא״ (נידה עג ע״א, מגילה כח:)

“Anyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-come” (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)


Where does "Mishenichnas Adar Marbim Be Simcha" come from?

Are there any segulot for Rosh Chodesh Adar?


Chodesh Tov Umevorach! Excellent question.

The Gemara in Masechet Ta’anit (29a) states, “Rabbi Yehuda son of Rav Shmuel ben Shilat taught in the name of Rav: Just as when the month of Av begins our happiness is diminished, so too, when Adar begins our happiness increases. Rav Papa says, therefore, if a Jew has a court case with a gentile pending, he should avoid having it in the month of Av when the Jewish nation’s fortune is down and try to have it held during the month of Adar when the Jewish nation’s fortune is good.”

The source for this is based on a verse in Megillat Esther (9:22) which states, “And the month which was switched for them from tragedy to joy,” which teaches us that the good fortune of this month brings about salvation and goodness for Israel, for their fortune is very good during this month.

The month of Adar is a particularly auspicious time for success. Therefore, if one needs to have a court case against a non-Jew, he should schedule it in Adar, since there is a greater opportunity for one to win. [1]
