"Don't tell God how big your storm is; tell your storm how big your God is."

I believe in God.

Rosh Hodesh Adar II

Tonight begins Rosh Hodesh Adar II, the beginning of the month of second Adar.  This year we have two months of Adar because it is a leap year, and during a Jewish leap year we add an extra month.  This month we will be celebrating the very exciting holiday of Purim! The Purim story is full of intrigue, danger, suspense, and plot twists.  In my opinion, it is the most fantastic story anywhere on the Jewish calendar.  Fun fact: God is never mentioned in the Purim story, which is known as Megillat Esther.

The holiday of Purim is celebrated with costumes, feasting, public readings of the Purim story, and gifts of food to the poor and to friends.  I'm excited!

About Me

My photo
I am a bipolar, Jewish young adult (had my Hebrew birthday, the one I count, and turned 23 this past January) who also suffers from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. I love life and I live for my best friends: they are my purpose and my reason for trying so hard. I remain passionately devoted to those I love; I will not let my disorders make me totally self-centered. I like to read, write, and sew. My Rabbinical school plans did not work out, and I am now hoping to go into the field of Early Childhood Education. Please note: I am currently maintaining only Carried in His Hands. Enjoy!
