Why did we waste all of that time? To write this whole article in rhyme?


Though the sun did shine 

And we wished we could play

We sat in the house

That entire long long day

To scary to go out

It’s not safe to play ball

We sat in the house 

And did nothing at all


All we could do was 





And we did not like it 

Not one little bit


No we weren’t punished

And our parents aren’t that mean

We were stuck in our house

Because we were under quarantine


The virus! That virus!

It shook up the town

And down became up

And up became down


This was NOT fun and games

This was NOT time to joke

The people were hurting

Their spirits were broke


Now life seems more calm

But we cannot forget

The people are still hurting

And all is not set


Their storefronts were locked

Their livelihoods blocked

Their systems are shocked

Tranquility rocked


With Yom Tov so near

They start to despair

They fear –

“Oh dear!

Will we make it this year?”


They aren’t to blame

And they all feel the same –

“Oh dear. What a shame! What a shame! What a shame!”


Now it’s our turn to give

We can give where we live

We can give over here

We can give everywhere


The need is so big and so deep and so tall

We can’t do it ourselves

There is no way at all!


So right on your block

Your block rep will knock

Please run and unlock

‘Cause we’re racing the clock!


We can NOT look away

We do NOT turn them down

But we cannot help them

Without help from the town


It is fun

To have fun

But we cannot be done

Until Yom Tov is fun

For everyone


And that is the reason we’re rhyming this season!


They turn to us

And we turn to you…

What would you do 

If this person was you?


Hundreds of families need our help this Yom Tov season, 

So together with Ahavas Tzedakah let’s all Rhyme for a Reason.
