The Jews of Kiev, from young to old, celebrated the holiday of Sukkos with a variety of activities that were even more successful than the Shluchim themselves could have imagined.
On the first day of Chol Haomed, the new Shluchim, Rabbi Ariel and Cherry Markovitch, organized a prestigious event for all the young Jews living in the city.
The next day, the Chief Rabbi of Kiev, Rabbi Yonathan Markovitch, distributed baskets of food to children from needy families and to the community elders. They were very excited to see the continuation of the Jewish chain and blessed the Shluchim that it should keep on growing.
In addition, every day, the mitzvah of Lulav was performed in various places around the city, and many people were given the opportunity to have a meal in the Sukkah.
