The Kew Gardens and Richmond Hills communities hosted a lively simchas bais ha’shoeva on Motza’ei Yom Tov, Chol HaMoed Sukkos, October 11, at Khal Adas Yereim in Kew Gardens. Attendees were treated to the music of Rabbi Ophie Nat, amongst an array of special guest singers. The packed program included singing and dancing, pizza and ice cream, as well as a heartfelt kumzits that included raffles for the children. Top prizes included a hoverboard, scooter, a 21-speed mountain bicycle, and $250, $100, and $25 Amazon gift cards. Adults were entered into a raffle for a framed picture of the Chofetz Chaim. The annual event was presented by Divrei Chizuk and the local Pirchei chapter. As the pictures are testament, fun was had by all.
