“Something Fishy About Two Adars”: The Mystical Secret of the Two Fish of Two Adars

hero image

Why of all months do we specifically double Adar?

Each of the twelve months correspond to one of the twelve shevatim. According to R’ Tzadok HaKohen Adar corresponds to Yosef since he was given the blessing of multiplying like fish (the mazal for Adar). Plus, Yosef and Adar are the only ones that are sometimes 1 and sometimes two (Menashe/Ephraim and Adar I/II).

Does Mishenichnas Adar Marbim B’Simcha apply to Adar I? Rav Yaakov Emden says it doesn’t; the Chatam Sofer says it does. What is the basis for their argument?

What is the mazel for Adar Aleph?
