מרחשון or חשון

Believe it or not I heard on the radio this morning that there is a group working to get the Knesset to pass a bill renaming this month from מרחשון to חשון. It seems that מרחשון is too depressing. With so many problems in Israel this is what the Knesset is wasting it's time on? Amazing. See Cheshvan for more info on what the correct name is.

If you had taken the trouble to listen a little more closely you would have heard that the group is trying to get the name changed to "Jewish Social Action Month" to highlight and encourage tikkun olam, chesed and tzedek - values that the Knesset should absolutely be "wasting" its time on...

Do you really think changing the name of the month will make one whit of a difference in the level of chessed?
