When Rosh Chodesh is observed appropriately, the entire month will be like Rosh Chodesh because the body follows the head… Therefore, it is proper for the wise to pay attention to Rosh Chodesh to serve Hashem properly on that day, for that will influence and make the entire month good. Even just one hour on Rosh Chodesh, when it is kept properly, the entire month will be good [and imbued with the holiness of Rosh Chodesh]. ~ The Ahavas Shalom zt”l
Today is Rosh Chodesh Iyar. Let’s keep the above in mind. A guten chodesh to everyone!
