Yeh, I must have stopped listening before he got to the Iyar bit... [my attention span has deteriorated rapidly since the internet]

As the moon waxes and wanes, similarly Am Yisrael shows the full light of the lunar cycle at mid-month.
HaShem's ultimate consolation being, I believe the mid-month full moon of Succot, symbol of the Geulah when all the nations will see the light of Maschiach.....all things start anew, from the trees, to the rescue of the Jews of Shushan, to the liberation of Am Yisrael from Mitzrayim, to the ultimate redemption of all mankind through Am Yisrael.

May it come speedily in our day.
