“[The two months of Adar] together have 60 days. If an unkosher liquid falls into a pot, the mixture can still be considered kosher if the unkosher part is less than a ratio of 1/60. The 60 days of these two months reflect the ability of this number to nullify negativity.

Adar…is spelled alef, dalet, reish. The alef represents the power of G‑d, which may seem to be separate from everyday existence. The dalet and reish form the word ‘dar’, which means ‘to dwell’. The alef, or G‑d‘s unlimited power, aims to create a dwelling place in this limited world.

Adar is a propitious month for protection, for improving ourselves and for joy, which reaches greater and greater levels as we progress through the two Adars.”
