Today is Rosh Chodesh Adar – that means Purim is just two weeks away!
Here on The Official ArtScroll Blog, we’ve been helping you prepare for Purim, and today’s free download will continue to help our loyal readers get ready for purim with the chapter about Adar from The Wisdom in the Hebrew Months by Zvi Ryzman.
Classic works of Jewish thought teach that each of the twelve lunar months corresponds to one of the twelve tribes. What do the months and the respective tribes have in common? … The Wisdom in the Hebrew Months opens the door to a new dimension of understanding. Drawing upon the full breadth of Talmudic, Midrashic, and Rabbinic literature, this work sheds new light on the months of the year, the tribes of Israel, and the ways that Hashem relates to His people. It is engrossing, interesting, stimulating, and provocative.
