Adar Alef, Extra Time to Prepare for Geula?

This is a Jewish Leap year, meaning that an extra month, Adar Alef, has been inserted into the winter, before spring, before Purim, the Holiday of Hester Panim, G-d's Hidden Miracles, and meaning more time to get ready for Pesach, Passover, the Holiday of our Geula, Yitzi'at Mitzrayim, The Exodus from Egypt.

In the meantime, G-d is blessing us with more of the necessary rain than we really deserve. The weathermen even predict a second snowfall.

Two weeks ago when it snowed we had a few days off.

I suggest that we all use the time we have to contemplate, to pray and to thank G-d for His gifts and goodness to us.

Shabbat Shalom U'Mevorach
