Shvat's Identity Crisis

Regarding the question I asked about the status of the 30th of Shvat which is also Rosh Chodesh Adar - It would seem to be a matter of dispute amongst the Poskim. I talk about it [among other things] in greater detail in the "Chagim" section in the shiur entitled "Mishloach Monkeys".

Incidentally, during the shiur I mentioned the opinion that one does not fulfill ones obligation if they send Mishloach Manos to a minor [affectionately known as a "katan", but my son Simcha takes umbrage when I call him "katan"]. I neglected to mention that this too is debated by the Poskim.

Faithfully Yours
