Letters To The Editor

Dear Editor,

 My late relative, Rav Avraham Genechovsky zt"l, previous rosh yeshiva of tshiben, provided me with the following phenomenal drash relating to when Adar arrives. The Gemara (Taanis 29a) states, “Mishenichnas Adar Marbim Bisimcha - when Adar arrives, one should rejoice.” Rav Avraham related this to another Gemara (Beitzah 15b) that says, "One who plants a tree called 'Adar' is guaranteed that his property will endure." Therefore, as Adar is symbolic of happiness, we may say that one who “plants” happiness into his heart will endure.
