For over 40 years, Chabad in Simcha Monica has conducted a Simchas Beis Hashoava in locations around the city.
In memory of Rabbi Levitansky, Chabad in Simcha Monica had decided to expand their sukkos activities. This was done by taking the joy to a whole new level never seen in the city’s history – bringing it to the streets!
This tremendous project required a myriad of permits from all the different departments of the city of Simcha Monica, which were obtained with much effort and difficulty.
This year, over 700 men women and children participated in the annual Sukkos extravaganza. All enjoyed the various attractions which included: Swings, train rides, moon bounce, giant slide, obstacle course, twirly cups, a tour of a mobile police station which included a police car, motorcycle, k9 units, etc., juggling show, snow cones, a petting zoo, and much more.
Many took the opportunity to eat the food and drink offered at the event in the giant Sukkah set up in the middle of the street and make the appropriate blessings.
Scores of people took the opportunity to shake the Lulav and Esrog, many for the first time this year. A Tzivos Hashem rally was held during which the children recited the 12 pesukim, gave Tzedaka and had a grand raffle for amazing prizes. This was followed by a grand juggling show.
Each year, a goal is set for the amount of Brochas which are made on the lulov and esrog. This year, Chabad in Simcha Monica has already doubled the goal of 5773 with a few days to spare.
This event is only one of the many activities of Chabad in Simcha Monica. The others include, visits to over 25 old age homes, a college sukkah party attended by over 500 students, permanent sukkas, as well as a fleet of sukka mobiles stationed throughout the city.
A special thank you is given to Shlomo Adin for all his help. A big yasher koach to all the bochurim who came from far and near to help run all the activities throughout the month of Tishrei.
