Since this Friday begins the first Adar, in which Purim ought to be celebrated but is not celebrated, being postponed until the second Adar, we’ll take a break from the topic of reincarnation to discuss why. This material comes from a book I wrote years ago called, “From Redemption to Redemption: The Very Deep and Intricate Connection Between The Holidays of Purim and Pesach."

Even though we normally try to perform mitzvos as soon as we can, we make an exception when it comes to Purim in a leap year. As to why that is the case is the basis of understanding the true meaning of both Purim and Pesach, and particularly the concept of freedom, something that can only be arrived at by making a detour through the story of Yosef and his brothers.
