A Family Simchah

The traditional MHA / FYOS Adar festivities kick off with the High School Boys dancing from their wing down to the elementary school wing and into each and every lower school classroom. There they gather up their younger schoolmates to repetitious renditions of "mi-she-nichnas adar" and march with them over to the gym where a band and a mechitza await. It struck me though, as I watched 12th graders walk hand in hand with 2nd graders, and as I saw 16 year olds dance with 3 year olds on their shoulders, that this was not a school celebration. It was a family simchah.
