|Some dances on this list include suggestions from the Rikud chat list which we attribute with thanks.|
The dance and music pertain to the first line of the special prayer recited on Purim or Hanukkah.
The body of the prayer has differentiation to specifically address Purim or Channukah, but except for the references to the particular holiday (2-4 lines of a 15+ line prayer), the rest of the text of the prayer is identical. Included in both Birkat Hamazon and daily/Shabbat liturgy (only Hannukah can fall on Shabbat).
|Many thanks to Mickey, Barbara, Michael, Steve, from the Rikud Chat list for this suggestion.|
