Sing In Adar

Song text: Mishenichnas Adar, marbim b’simcha!

Translation: When Adar arrives, joy increases!

Singing is a powerful way to get into our bodies and feel! Singing in community can heighten our connection to song and its powerful evocative function. I believe that when we sing something out loud, it helps us believe in it more fully. It’s a silly song. Lose yourself in the goofiness and joy. That's what Adar is all about!

Let’s Discuss:

  • How do you think singing these words may change your feelings about the upcoming month?
  • Ask yourself: what might increase your joy this month?
  • What else, in addition to joy, would you like to increase this month? Try zippering in another word besides “simcha” (joy) at the end of the song, even if it’s in English. Here are some examples: Mishenichnas Adar, marbim b’fun! Mishenichnas Adar, marbim b’intention! Mishenichnas Adar, marbim b’laughter!
