INSIGHT: What’s so special about Nissan?

A Long 3 Months!

A Long 3 Months!

It was the 25th day of Kislev, 2,449 years after the creation of the world, and the work for the Mishkan was just about completed.

HaShem said to Moshe, “Do not finish putting the Mishkan together quite yet. Wait 3 more months. On the first day of the month of Nissan, my Holy House will be completely ready.”

The 25th of Kislev… this day may sound familiar to you. Although this date was not destined to be the day of the dedication of the Mishkan, HaShem did set it aside to be the date of another holiday – Chanukah – which celebrates the rededication of the Second Beis HaMikdash!

What’s so special about Nissan?

Nissan was the perfect month for a happy event such as the dedication of the Mishkan, for it is a month of joy:

It was in Nissan that Avraham and Sarah learned that they would have a son. It was in Nissan that Bnei Yisrael went out of Egypt – and our Rabbis tell us that Nissan will be the month of our future redemption… with the coming of Moshiach!
