    A wonderful day. Met lots of new faces on my rounds:) Guests from other communities had a fabulous time!! All vendors were so friendly. Mendy’s excelled with the amount of food the way they served and didn’t get flustered with the volume of people! Exemplary! Thank you all those that put this together:)

Kpshertown salads and cake divine. Going there for shabbos take out for sure!!! Was so pleased to have so much fun and meet such warm people and give money to a good cause.

    Grub is not the word

    Smiles and food, both very beautiful things. However to make a public outdoor festival about food seems like a bit to much. Is it not possible to rent an indoor spot?
    Crown heights is far from being the spiritual safe Haven it was intended to be,but please let’s not make it foodie heaven

    looking forward to next year

    Why? Since when can’t we voice differing opinions? At what point have we changed the definition of ‘achdus to mean ‘ -everything that is ever done is always one hundred percent fine. and don’t argue because that means you hate other jews.
    Achdus means that despite having alternative views, we none the less recognize that it shouldn’t be substantial grounds to divide us.
    So please have a little more achdus and don’t tell the world that they must conform to your worldview.

    Thank you

    Thank you

    this really sounds like it was tons of fun but let’s not forget the old Yiddisheh adage ‘ eat to live, not live to eat.’

    B"H sounds like a great fundraiser

    ..don’t want to be negative but how come I didn’t see any tefillin stations in the photos.. Maybe there were ?

    This whole event reminds how far (low?) we’ve come when a ‘bagel mit buter’ was considered an extreme extravagance unbefitting a chosid… not that I am so holy myself…

    I love all my fellow Jews and lovers of Jews, thanks for allowing me to share…
