Fruits of the Orchard – Vayigash By Rabbi Avraham Arieh Trugman

Rabbi Avraham Arieh Trugman – Shares about this “dramatic” parashah coming up with the clashing of two worlds represented by Yehuda and Yosef. The baal tshuva and the religious from birth. The Moshiach ben Yehuda and the Moshiach ben Yosef. Also, the Yosef cried eight times showing the power in being sensitive and emotional even as the most powerful man in the World. How did he learn to cry? From her Mother Rachel. According to Rav Ginsberg – the Hebrew word for tear is dima (dalet, mem, ayin, heh) which is the gematria of 119. Since two eyes drop tears X2 equals 238 which is the gematria of Rachel. Role models for Jewish leadership exemplified in both Yehuda and Yosef (repentance and sensitivity). Rabbi Trugman also shows how much Yaakov and Yosef’s life’s parallel each other throughout the events that they both experienced in their respective lives. Many more details in the video.

Masechet Nedarim: DaF 63 – מסכת נדרים: דף ס”ג

Adar I and Adar IIאֲדָר רִאשׁוֹן וְאֲדָר שֵׁנִי
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. 
יֶשְׁנָן שָׁנִים שֶׁבָּהֶן יֵשׁ שְׁנֵי חוֹדְשֵׁי אֲדָר. אֲדָר רִאשׁוֹן וַאֲדָר שֵׁנִי. שָׁנִים אֵלּוּ נִקְרָאוֹת שָׁנִים מְעוּבָּרוֹת, שֶׁיֵּשׁ בָּהֶן שְׁלוֹשָׁה עָשָׂר חוֹדָשִׁים וְלֹא שְׁנֵים עָשָׂר חוֹדָשִׁים כִּבְשָׁנָה רְגִילָה. יֶלֶד שֶׁנּוֹלַד בְּחוֹדֶשׁ אֲדָר בְּשָׁנָה רְגִילָה, וּבַר הַמִּצְוָה שֶׁלּוֹ חָל בְּשָׁנָה מְעוּבֶּרֶת, מָתַי חוֹגְגִים לוֹ “בַּר מִצְוָה”-  בַּאֲדָר רִאשׁוֹן אוֹ בְּאֲדָר שֵׁנִי? הַתְּשׁוּבָה הִיא: בְּאֲדָר שֵׁנִי! גַּם אֶת מִצְוַת קְרִיאַת מְגִילַּת אֶסְתֵּר וְאֶת כָּל מִצְווֹת יוֹם הַפּוּרִים מְקַיְּמִים בְּאֲדָר שֵׁנִי. אֲבָל אִם הוּא נוֹלַד בְּשָׁנָה מְעוּבֶּרֶת בְּאֲדָר א’ וּשְׁנַת בַּר הַמִּצְוָה שֶׁלּוֹ הִיא גַּם כֵּן בְּשָׁנָה מְעוּבֶּרֶת, הוּא נִהְיֶה בַּר מִצְוָה בְּאֲדָר א’.
