  Adar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Adar (אֲדָר, Standard Hebrew Adar, Tiberian Hebrew ʾĂḏār: from Akkadian adaru) is the sixth month of the religious year and the twelfth month of the civil year on the Hebrew calendar.
In leap years, it is preceded by a 30-day intercalary month named Adar Alef, Adar Rishon or Adar I and it is then itself called Adar Bet, Adar Shenei or Adar II.
Occasionally instead of Adar I and Adar II, "Adar" and "Veadar" are used.

The name "Adar" itself, like all the other names for the Jewish months we use today, is the Babylonian name for the month which was adopted by the Jewish people during their exile in Babylon between the First Temple period and the rebuilding of the Second Temple.
Thus, Adar, at one level, remains "the twelfth month," and at another, "the sixth month," and the heroine of the Book of Esther has two names-her Jewish name "Hadassah," and "Esther" the Persian name by which she will be known in Achashverosh's court.
Adar's sign of the zodiac in Adar Sheini continues to be dagim ("fish"-in the plural.) The motif of Jewish survival makes its appearance not only in the sign of the zodiac that symbolizes Adar but also in the events of the month itself.

 The Joy of Adar -- Darche Noam Institutions
The standard understanding of this passage is that even though Moshe died on the 7th of Adar, nevertheless 120 years earlier he was born on the same date.
Haman knew that Moshe died in Adar, and because of this he mistakenly thought that the Jews no longer had the ability to spread the sanctity of Hashem or the Torah.
The high level of closeness to Hashem we experience in Adar is truly a reason to be filled with simcha from the beginning of the month.

The ADAR packages include support for decimal data with up to 18 digits of precision, arithmetic operations with programmer control over rounding versus truncation, conversions to and from common external representations, and formatted output of decimal values based on COBOL's "picture" clauses.
The ADAR packages offer a portable interface via a set of unit specifications, and a portable (although not necessarily efficient) reference implementation.
ADAR provides two approaches to decimal arithmetic: one through a discriminated private type, where discriminants establish precision (the number of digits) and scale (the number of digits to the right of the decimal point); and another through generic packages, where the effect of precision and scale is established via generic instantiation.

 The Jewish Month of Adar According to Sefer Yetzirah
The word Adar is cognate to the Hebrew adir, meaning "strength." Adar is the month of good fortune for the Jewish people.
When there are two Adars, Purim is celebrated in the second Adar, in order to link the redemption of Purim to the redemption of Pesach.
In the opposite direction, the fish of the joy of Purim, the strong (though initially hidden, as fish) mazal of Adar, convert all the worry in the heart of man to the ultimate joy of redemption with the new birth of self from the "unknowable head."

In Adar, the terrible threat that hung over the entire Jewish community in the times of Haman was transformed into the joyous holiday of Purim.
Concerning the kind of things that should be done to arouse simcha, the Rebbe suggested that each person should proceed according to his level: a child, for instance, should be made happy by his parents; a wife by her husband, and visa versa.
The month of Adar I brings with it not only the injunction to increase in joy, but with every command we are also given the power and energy to fulfill that command.

The 13th of Adar is the day that Haman chose for the extermination of the Jews, and the day that the Jews battled their enemies for their lives.
In leap years, when there are two months of Adar, Purim is celebrated in the second month of Adar, so it is always one month before Passover.
The 14th day of the first Adar in a leap year is celebrated as a minor holiday called Purim Katan, which means "little Purim." There are no specific observances for Purim Katan; however, a person should celebrate the holiday and should not mourn or fast.

 Adar, Purim, and Happiness throughout the Year
One of the more interesting aspects of the Jewish month of Adar, is the special relationship it has to "simcha" (happiness).
Especially relevant is the fact that the miracles of Passover in Nissan were miracles that transcended nature, whereas the miracles in Adar of Purim, were miracles that were in nature, whereas the course of nature continued unchanged.
From the statement in the Talmud: "When the month of Adar arrives, happiness increases," we see that the happiness that increases is not a new or different happiness, but the same happiness that a Jew should have during the entire year, except the amount is increased.
