Yes? I am Misha. Can I help you?

Yes? Yes? Yes? Yes? Yes?!?

It sounds like singing, but they're calling ... calling ... calling my name ...

"Misha, Misha, Misha, Misha, Misha, Misha" Why???

You have a whole slew of achievements to your name that few can match.

מִי שֶׁבֵּרַךְ אֲבותֵינוּ אַבְרָהָם יִצְחָק וְיַעֲקב. ... וּמִי שֶׁמְּיַחֲדִים בָּתֵּי כְנֵסִיּות לִתְפִלָּה. וּמִי שֶׁבָּאִים בְּתוכָם לְהִתְפַּלֵּל. וּמִי שֶׁנּותְנִים נֵר לַמָּאור וְיַיִן לְקִדּוּשׁ וּלְהַבְדָּלָה וּפַת לְאורְחִים וּצְדָקָה לָעֲנִיִּים. ‏

Misha blessed our fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. ... Misha dedicates synagogues for prayer, and Misha comes into them to pray, and Misha gives candles for light, and wine for kidush and havdala, and bread for guests and charity for the poor!

The cries of Misha, Misha, Misha... tend to start on the Shabbat on which we bless the coming month of Adar, and we tell you then exactly what we want from you.

מִי שֶׁעָשָׂה נִסִּים לַאֲבותֵינוּ וְגָאַל אותָם מֵעַבְדוּת לְחֵרוּת הוּא יִגְאַל אותָנוּ בְּקָרוב

Misha did miracles for our fathers, and redeemed them from slavery to freedom. May he redeem us soon!

Not a small task, but if anyone can do it, it's Misha!

So, as we were saying: Misha, Misha, Misha, Misha, Misha, Misha, Misha, Misha, Misha, Adar is coming! Misha, Misha, Misha, Misha, Misha, Misha, Misha, Misha, Misha, Adar is coming! Misha, Adar is coming! We're supposed to increase our happiness (hint, hint)!

Well, Misha, we feel bad that you've been spending so much time stuck outside in a booth, especially while your table is in the house (Mishna Sukka 2:7):

מי שהיה ראשו ורובו בסוכה, ושלחנו בתוך הבית

Misha's head and body is in a booth, and his table is in the house.

So, we thought we should invite you inside the house. You can come in through any door you'd like!

משנכנס אדר מרבים בשמחה

Misha, come in through a door, it would make everyone happier!


Misha nichnas Takhar. Marbin b'simcha?

Misha entered Takhar. You think we're happy?

They're waking you up to warn you they're planning a boycott.
