From Purim to Passover

Had a great morning at work with the kids and adults of the congregation celebrating Purim.

After our Purim celebration, had a rehearsal with the second grade class for their class Shabbat, their theme being Passover. I introduced the new song I found, “Standing at the Sea,” by the Allards. It was awesome! I explained the piece to them regarding the history of our exodus from Egypt, taught them what the words, “Mi Chamocha” means, let them listen to the first verse, then we sang the whole thing. Oh, I did give them the words to the piece, of course. We had a great rehearsal after that, going over the prayers they are responsible for in the service, then sang the song again. It was great. I am relieved. Kids usually come through, but because of lack of time with the class, I was a little nervous about it. Now I am asking myself, why? They were great!

Chag Purim Sameach everyone!
