The month of Purim is most known for the phrase משנכנס אדר מרבין בשמחה (Mishenichnas Adar marbin b’simcha!) and Rabbi Cohen spoke about our seemingly elusive search for happiness. We live in a country, in an age, where everyone is looking for happiness and yet they can’t seem to find it.

Chodesh Tov! (and Sameach!)

Rabbi Kohn delved right into that discussion and stayed throughout the day to check everyone’s tefillin.
