Wa’na make some noise? Well, now you can, with the help of the Ra’ashan.

According to the Jewish tradition, Ra’ashan” ( a ratchet/noisemaker), is used in PURIM, when Haman’s name is mentioned during the reading of the Megilla, as tradition dictates, to blot out the name of evil.

The Ra’ashan is an orchestral musical instrument played by percussionists. Operating on the principle of the ratchet device, a gearwheel and a stiff board is mounted on a handle, which can be freely rotated. The handle is held and the whole mechanism is swung around, the momentum causing the board to click against the gearwheel, making a clicking and rattling noise.

· The Ra’ashan can be used to blot out Haman’s name.

· It can be used simply as an entertainment device for you and your kids during the holiday of Purim!

· You can also use the Ra’ashan if you are told something you do not wish to hear- in which case you will activate the Ra’ashan and get across a clear message. . .
