The Rockin Chabad Japan Rabbi
Typhoon here, typhoon there, Succa Mobile is everywhere!
This week, Rabbi Binyomin Edery drove all around with the Succa Mobile, Shibuya, Ueno, Shinjuku, Setagaya, Chiba, and even as far as Shizuoka, Hamamatsu, Nagoya and Gifu, around 6 hours from Tokyo, one way. The Succa Mobile was at King Falafel for all the Jewish people stopping by.
It’s good Japan is surrounded by water, otherwise, the Rabbi would be driving from country to country conquering Asia with his Mitzvha Tank- Succa Mobile and spiritual weapons, sword- Lulav, hand grenade- Etrog, myrtle and willow as spears.
One thing is for sure, a lot of darkness was dispelled from the Land of the Rising Sun during this Sukkot Holiday.
Even the Japanese couldn’t resist the charming restaurant-hut on wheels with the smiling bearded ”Sacho”.
The people who came in to the Succa were extremely moved, and gladly brought their children to make a blessing as well. As one woman, living in Japan for 15 years put it: there is a feeling of serenity and holiness that you feel when you sit in a sukka, that you cannot describe it in words. I am so happy my 5 children had a chance to experience it even so far out here in Japan! I greatly appreciate this great mitzvah”.
