Ceremonies
Greeting Shabbat in Purim

Purim Day

Purim day, Purim day
For the Jews - a holiday!
Put on masks, graggers, hey!
Sing and dance all day!

Wind your graggers - "clack, clack, clack"
Wind your graggers - "clack, clack, clack"
Wind your graggers - "clack, clack, clack"
Sound them loud and gay!

Purim day, Purim day
To our friends we send away

Plates with Treats

bits of sweets
and we chew away... 

Wind your graggers...

Candle Lighting

"Blessed are you G-d our Lord, king of the universe, who sanctified us with his commandments and ordered us to light Shabbat candles."

 

Mask

A long beard until my knees

A mustache as long as two feet

 

Is there anyone glad like me

I'm the mask - as you may see

There's no one who, is just like me

I'm the mask – you see!

 

I have horns just like a he-goat

I have teeth like a fierce lion

 

Is there anyone glad...

 

A ribbon on braids falls before me

A great big tail just waves behind me

 

It there anyone....

The Camp Greeting

Have someone tell about something good that happened to him/her in the past week!

 

My Favorite Things (from The Sound of Music)

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

 

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels
Door bells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

 

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into Springs
These are a few of my favorite things

 

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad.

 

The Blessing Over Hamantashen

"Blessed are you G-d, our Lord, king of the universe who creates various kinds of sustenance"

 

Make a round with this question: What did I dress up as?

 

Shabbat Shalom and Happy Holiday!
