The first day the Kohein does his service, he has to bring,
Oil and flour, a mincha as an offering.
The Kohein Gadol does the same, following the Torah way,
But he makes sure to bring one every single day.
The laws of the korbanos for the kohanim and what they have to do,
Is reviewed in this week’s parsha, there’s a lot to go through.
The Torah tells us how Moshe anointed the kehuna to Aharon,
And also to his sons who all were so well known.
After teaching all the rules and working very hard,
Moshe calls Bnei Yisrael to gather in the Mishkan’s courtyard
With a special kind of oil, Aharon was anointed,
And to be be a Kohein Gadol he was then appointed.
There is something in this parsha, that I want to see if you know,
What is it that is constant and always has a glow.
This had to be seen for an eternity,
Do you know the answer, look in your chumash to see…
(The fire must constantly be burning on the mizbeiach and the Koein is responsible to never let it extinguish.)

And since yesterday and today (In Yerushalayim) is Purim, we must always remember...
The child who forgets a line is out of the game. This is a great game that I play with my patients in speech therapy. It is also a great language builder.
