Today (14 Iyar) is Pesach Sheini – literally “the second Passover.”
What does that mean? Isn’t Passover over already?
In the times of the Beis HaMikdash, the Jews offered the korban Pesach sacrifice on the 14th of Nissan, right before Pesach. However, anyone who was tamei (ritually impure) was not allowed to offer the sacrifice at that time. But these impure people were given a second chance to offer the sacrifice 1 month later, on the 14th of Iyar, known as “Pesach Sheini.”
In light of this, Pesach Sheini represents the concept of second chances. It reminds us that even if we fail or miss an opportunity once, Hashem is always ready and eager to give us a second chance.
