What is special about the upcoming Shabbat?

The upcoming Shabbat is also Shabbat Mevarchim – “the Shabbat when we bless” the next Hebrew month of Adar.


From the Rebbe’s explanations:

– Our Sages associate the month of Adar with “joining one redemption (the redemption of Purim) with another redemption (the redemption of Pesach).” May we merit the ultimate Redemption immediately — with all the significance of the word immediately, miyad (מיד) in Hebrew.

As explained on previous occasions, this word refers to the three Jewish leaders associated with Redemption:

  • Moshe,
  • Yisrael (the Baal Shem Tov),
  • and David (who is referred to as malkah meshicha, “the anointed king”).

And most importantly, may we merit the simple meaning of the word miyad, that the Redemption come immediately without any delay.

Based on the Rebbe’s talk on Shabbat Mishpatim (5752).
