 Dear friends,
This Shabbat is Shabbat Mevarchim ("the Shabbat that blesses" the new month): a special prayer is recited blessing the Rosh Chodesh ("Head of the Month") of upcoming month of Adar, which falls on Thursday and Friday of next week.
The month of Adar is the happiest month of the year
“When the month of Adar enters, we increase in joy”. -Talmud, Taanit 26b
I’d like to personally invite you all to this year’s Purim celebration, held on the 7th of March at 5pm, Ktima Makenzy. This year’s theme is “Purim India” and we have a very special program prepared for you, so don’t miss out!
Let’s make this Purim different, by making others happy as well in this month of Happiness.
