Rav Berland’s Prayer for Rosh Chodesh Adar Aleph
Master of the world, All Powerful.
Please give me the merit, when I approach the time of birth of the moon for the month of the first Adar, the month of miracles and wonders, the month of wiping out Haman and Amalek, which will be on Monday night, the light of Tuesday, 11:36pm and 15 parts (of a minute).
That this is the time that “ga’ava” – ego – which is also called Amalek, is nullified. It has the numerical value of 15 and the 15 parts of the minute of the molad stand against it, to nullify it.
It parallels the 36 tzaddikim, that all of their light shines during the month of Adar, which is an acronym for “the head which is not known” and an acronym for “the head of your words is Truth”, because now during the month of Adar we merit the head which is not known.
And to know that the essence of all knowledge is to not know anything, and that it’s impossible to really know anything, because
“there is no comprehension to Your Greatness”.
