Commemoration of Miracle

To Purchase this Sefer [1]

One who annually commemorates a miracle that occurred to him in the month of Adar is to commemorate the miracle in Adar I, if the miracle occurred in a year with one Adar, or in the 1st Adar of a leap year. If it occurred on the second Adar of a leap year then one commemorates it in Adar II of a leap year. The meal that takes place in commemoration of the event is considered a Seudas Mitzvah.[2]


[1] M”B 697/2

[2] The reason: As every meal which takes place to commemorate G-d’s miracles and wonders has a status of a Mitzvah feast. [ibid; Chayeh Adam] This is unlike the ruling of the Peri Chadash.
