We each have a goy inside of us who wants us to see the world from his perspective and act based on that. The month of Adar is an opportune time to take our goy to court.
By Rabbi Mordechai Lipskier – The Beis Medrash
Chazal say that during the month of Adar the mazel of a Yid is strong, and if a Yid has litigation with a goy he should have it during this month.
Why out of all things do Chazal choose this example to illustrate our good mazel?
The very fact that a Yid is in litigation with a goy indicates that this Yid is deeply affected by the state of galus. Ideally, a Yid shouldn’t have any dealings with a goy, let alone legal battles. Chazal want to emphasize how powerful Adar is, that even such a Yid has a unique strength at this time. 
Regarding the situation in Eretz Yisroel, it’s unfortunate that the Yiddishe political leaders don’t have the clarity and strength to do what’s right in spite of the pressures from goyishe nations. But with Hashem’s help, let this year’s double Adar give them double strength to do what’s right for the safety of all Yidden.
On an individual level, we each have a goy inside of us. Our internal Yid and goy are constantly struggling. The goy wants us to see the world from his perspective and act based on that, but the Yid in us argues that the Torah’s way is best.
The month of Adar is an opportune time to take our goy to court. When it comes to legal battles, the goy wants to go to secular courts and not to a beis din, similarly, regarding our inner litigations, we can get the goy inside of us to understand why the Torah’s way is good for us, even on a very material and physical level.
It’s geshmak to be a Yid!
