On the surface, Chad Gadya appears to be nothing so much as a simple folk tune or nursery rhyme. But like so many folk tunes and nursery rhymes, the odd imagery in this song seemingly about a baby goat bought with two coins likely has deeper meaning.
While we enjoy the fun singing after seder dinner, this isn't only an amusing pirate shanty to be sung with a glass of wine in hand.
Use this deck to add an extra level of post-dinner ruach (spirit) to your seder. Best played while singing Chad Gadya while standing in a circle AWAY from the table.
Divide the cards evenly among participants and start singing, with people holding up the right cards at the right time. If you're the first person to hold up your card, then toss the card to the ground (never toss The Holy One card to the ground). Keep singing until the end.
Try it while singing in English or Hebrew!
