I heard a nice pshat yesterday, on 7 Adar, regarding Moshe Rabbeinu’s yartzeit. We know Haman was thrilled that his pur ,his lottery, that he cast, fell out in the month of Adar, because that was the month Moshe, the great Manhig of Klal Yisroel, was niftar. What he DIDN’T know is that Moshe was also BORN in Adar.

The question one must ask is, so what if he was born on that day, l’mayseh he died on that day? Rather the idea here is as follows. When a baby is born he comes into this world with clentched fists, symbolizing ‘ME’, everything belongs to ME, I’m only concerned about ME. And he lives his life with the Avodah of opening those hands and working on changing the ‘Ich’ to ‘Zich’, striving to becoming a selfless person. The last thing the chevra kadisha does to a meis is open up his hands, so that he shouldn’t leave the world with closed hands as he came into the world when he was born.

Moshe Rabbeinu was born to be an Eved Hashem and lived his whole life that way, and he still is omeid u’meshamesh l’maaloh. So therefore there’s no difference between the leidah and the petirah, because by moshe it’s not pshat his Avdus was bottul when he was niftar. Aderabbeh, his life was one long Avdus, and now that he went to the upper worlds, it’s just a hemshich and continuation of that Avdus. That’s what Haman didn’t realize, and as they say, the rest is history.
