On a glorious Sydney Sunday, Chabad Youth NSW held its Sukkot in Luna Park event…now firmly established  as one of Sydney’s premier Jewish family events.

Romy Teperson strolled with her fellow clowns into the area housing the sukkah at the back of the park…and was immediately asked to say the brochat and the then shake the lulav and etrog.

With discounted ride tickets, kosher food by L’amour Catering and the new expanded 64 square metre sukkah, Sukkot in Luna Park was something special this year. The clear blue sky and blazing sun created an environment where people could enjoy a fun day out with their families, eat kosher food in a Sukkah and even shake the Lulav with one of the Yeshiva’s student rabbis.

“The event brings the community together to celebrate Sukkot in an informal setting, just as our ancestors rejoiced in ancient days in and around the Temple in Jerusalem.”

Participants came from all over the Sydney metropolitan area and as far afield as the Blue Mountains. “We are very happy to be able to provide such events that increase in Jewish awareness and practice'” Rabbi Elimelech Levy of Chabad Youth added. “There is nothing that brings the community together more than celebration.”
