There are years during which there are two months of Adar, i.e., Adar I and Adar II. These years are known as leap years: years in which there are 13 months and not 12 months, as is the case in a usual year. Regarding a child born in the month of Adar of a regular year, and whose Bar Mitzvah takes place in a leap year, when would we celebrate that young man’s Bar Mitzvah — during בְּשמחָה Adar I or Adar II? The answer is: Adar II! Likewise, the mitzvah of reading Megillat Esther and all the mitzvot of Purim day are performed during Adar II. However, if a boy was born in Adar I during a leap year, and the year of his Bar Mitzvah is also a leap year, that boy would become Bar Mitzvah during Adar I.
Rabbi Evan Hoffman – In this Daf Yomi (daily Talmud page learning) summary Rabbi Hoffman shares about the topic of vows and technically how they annulled both for past unfulfilled and for those vows that might be unintentionally made and how Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur play a significant role in this. There are also several other topics discussed as well.
Rabbi David Yisrael Kalmus – This video is Rabbi Kalmus Siyyum which is a celebration for a completion of learning a tractate of Talmud (which could take months of intense learning). It usually includes reciting the last couple verses in the Talmud section and expounding upon it.
Personal Thoughts – The video has some very powerful global ideas about the concept that we have to fall (sometimes quite hard) before we rise – that the fall itself predicts the rise (so its actually a positive). My experience in my own life reflects this concept so I really identified strongly with his Siyyum talk.
