Shevat Bet? A Joyless Adar Alef
I was wrong. This Adar Alef suddenly had a heatwave, and the fruit trees have not only bloomed, but the petals have already fallen wastefully to the ground. And not only that, but young people have died. Friends and neighbors have lost children.
I'm writing this post the day before it is to be posted. The day of posting, the day you'll see this article is the 29th of Adar Alef. There is to be one more day of the month, but that day is already Rosh Chodesh Adar Bet.
May the true joy begin and may all the mourners be comforted. We need some smachot, joyful news and joyful occasions. Gd willing...
