Pesach is stripping down to the Disney version of

Did I get your attention yet?

Two words you probably never thought I’d use, and probably Disney is at the top.

On the way to dropping off two bags of old clothes at the thrift shop, I heard the song “Bare Necessities” on our local jazz station. I never would have thought that it was jazz, to begin with, but I really focused more on the words than the music, to be honest.

So there it is. Now what’s the big deal?

Let’s repeat the last words:

And don’t spend your time lookin’ around
For something you want that can’t be found
When you find out you can live without it
And go along not thinkin’ about it
I’ll tell you something true

The bare necessities of life will come to you.

Got it now?

Stripping down to the bare necessity of matzah. Getting rid of the excess. Finding out what’s truly important.

Singing your song.

Even if it’s Disney.
