Shma Koleinu

The other day in the car I was trying to introduce my children to some Jewish music by Blue Fringe. I introduced the first song called  Shma Koleinu as a serious song. Yishama who just turned four has never heard the song. He blurts out, ” I love that song, I love Shmacarena“. Without missing a beat Yadid who is six starts dancing the Macarena.

It is only when we practice listening to children that we teach them that they have a voice. It was truly a lesson in Shma Koleinu, hear our voice.  And we learned it from our son named Yishama  which means “he will be heard”. A seriously funny lesson in parenting and in life. We should take our work seriously, but not ourselves.
