You are covered up, you cannot see,
even if you are facing me.
Every day in Eretz Yisrael,
2 times all together at the kotel.
In chutz laaretz, only sometimes,
To be exact, it is six times.
My hands are washed, my socks are clean,
When my hands are up, they cannot be seen.
This bracha you can hear me say,
And while you listen and look away.
You might daven about a dream you had,
if you are not sure if it was good or bad.
On Friday night this bracha might be said,
as Abba puts both hands on your head.
Aharon was one and his sons were too,
And also the pasuk- now you guessed this clue.


This week’s Parasha continues to list the various jobs that were done by the Levi'im , such as dismantling and carrying different parts of the Mishkan. All these were jobs that were equally important and done for all of Bnei Yisrael. Look in the Chumash you will see how each one if these tasks were mentioned on their own.  Why?  This teaches us that every job and every action is important. Go around the Shabbat table and discuss different kinds of jobs.  Discuss what your parents do and think of many other jobs that people have. Talk about the importance of jobs and how people have to work together to make the job turn out right.  Discuss jobs that people have that might be hard for them.  Talk about the importance of being nice to people, especially those who are doing things for us.  This includes the garbage man, the mailman, and the guards at the school (in Eretz Yisrael).  Don’t forget to say hello and thank them when you see them.  They will really appreciate it and feel good.  Also talk about the different jobs you have around the house and how it is important to work together. 

יברכך ה' וישמרך,
יאר ה' פניו אליך ויחנך,
ישא ה' פניו אליך
וישם לך שלום (במדבר ו' כ"ד-כ"ז).
