Today I was saying Hallel and it just wasn't right. How could I say Hallel without shaking my arba minim?? The ikker mitzva of the נענעועים is during Hallel. EVERYBODY knows that!
So I saw an adorable 5 year old boy and picked him up. Hooooo-ooodooooo Laaaaaa-sheeeemmmm kiiii-iiiiiii toooo-oo-oooov ...... and shook him up, down and in the four directions.
That actually happened - but only in my imagination....
There is actually more than just humor here [very meek humor, if you ask me...]. The ikker of Sukkos is the arba minim. The ikker of Pesach is the kids. למען תספר באזני בנך. והגדת לבנך. כנגד ארבע בנים דברה תורה.
