Item Description:

The commandment to sanctify the new month is given in this week’s Torah portion of Bo. According to the text, the names of the months are based on their numerical placement within the calendar year. The question is raised: Why nowadays do we call the Hebrew months by their Persian names which were given during the Babylonian exile and not those written in the Torah? With clarity and insight, Rabbi Berel Wein delves into this puzzling question using the beautiful commentary of Rabbi Yaakov Kamentesky. The discussion will disclose timeless strategies to cope with our long and bitter exile and the wisdom of the sages in guiding the Jewish People for all time.
