I just realized that I was possibly offensive by spelling out G-d in my previous question. I am sorry and meant no disrespect to you or to G-d. Thank you for honoring the holiness of His name. Reply

I am a Christian who loves the story of Esther and God's wonderful deliverance of the Jewish people. But, I don't understand Hebrew. Would anyone be kind enough to translate the song for me? I want to share it with my granddaughter. Reply

I haven't heard the song in like 40 years but I still remember the words. Funny how hebrew school songs stick with us. Great song and a great holiday!!! Reply

I'm teaching myself this song on the pennywhistle...Bit incongruous but still sounds good! Reply

Being Jewish is the BEST!! I am a Jew by Choice!!! And Proud of being Jewish! I may not be an Orthodox...but I'm Jewish! And I know my "Jewish Soul" loves the music and the poeple! Reply

purim fest, purim fest
joy for kids and fun at best
costumes, rattles, songs and dance [all day and all night]
let's make noise, noise noise noise
let's make noise, noise noise noise
clacking with the rattles

notes:
(1) Your version says "joy for jews". I know the song as "joy for kids"
(2) [all day and all night] is added just to follow the beat.
(3) instead of "noise noise noise", make any sound that you like. You may use the Hebrew original word there: raash, raash, raash. Reply

Thank you, Eric; we are now learning to sing it in Hebrew and English. I also found some nice versions on itunes which help.

By the way, as a new user I love the website, but I am having difficulty downloading some files. I gea messages saying I need to have Windows Media installed, but I do! - and it's the latest version. Am I just being dim? Reply
