This morning after davening I was struck by the congregation breaking out into song:

Misha nichnas our door, mar bamba simcha!

I looked around the room but was unable to identify the new member of the minyan. Upon further reflection, this verse poses a number of conundrums:

  • Who is this Misha?

  • Why is it critical that Misha enter through the door and not, for example, the window or a skylight?

  • Why would their presence transform the consumption of a normally disappointing bag of peanut puffs into a joyous occasion?

This question is Purim Torah and is not intended to be taken completely seriously. See the Purim Torah policy.

  • Why would Misha enter through the window? – Daniel Mar 11 '16 at 15:19
  • @Daniel "Ki Alah Misha BiChaloneinu?" We see Hillel using the skylight, but let's say the shul was too tall for him to get up to the roof - the window would be the next logical choice. – Isaac Kotlicky Mar 11 '16 at 15:33
  • Curious, what is the actual song being parodied here? – SAH Mar 11 '16 at 20:41
  • @SAH Mishenichnas Adar Marbim Bisimcha – Isaac Kotlicky Mar 11 '16 at 21:40
