Halachot of the Month of Adar

  • Chazal tell us “Mishnichnas Adar Marbim BeSimcha” (Adar brings with it happiness).  Thus, if one has a court case with a non-Jew one should try to have it during this month.

  • MeSheNichNas Adar Marbim BeSimcha really refers to removing sadness and worry but not necessarily including activities of simcha.

  • Many hold that MeSheNichNas Adar Marbim BeSimcha applies to purim katan in the first Adar during a leap year.

  • Beginning Rosh Chodesh Adar, some have the custom to hang a sign which says "Mishnichnas Adar Marbim Brsimcha." Some have the custom to place this sign covering the "Zecher Lechurban" unfinished part of a wall that is usually left in the home.
