Mizinke - (meh-ZINK-a)

A joyous dance towards the end of the simcha (reception), which honors parents who have brought their last daughter or son to the wedding canopy. The parents are seated on the dance floor, and the guests encircle them -- lavishing them with flowers and kisses. Sometimes the parents are crowned with a wreath of flowers, which is called the "Krenzl." The dance is to "Die Mezinke Oysgegeben" ("The Youngest Daughter is Given"). One version is on "Jewish Folksongs" by Theodore Bikel. Tara Publications is one source.
