When Adar enters we increase Joy. Yet how can we be happy when we live in such troubling times? From rockets falling daily on S’derot, to the brutal massacre of 8 of our Yeshiva Bochurim in Yeshivat Merkas HaRav — It has been difficult to feel joy.

In the midst of it all many are troubled by the recent ban by Gadolim on a concert in America.

This Shmuz attempts to make sense of the events we are living through, and offers a perspective on our times.
