Beth Chabad CSL held their annual Simchat Torah Beth Hashoeva Concert at Pierre Elliott Trudeau Park. Inspired by Rabbi Mendel Raskin and his team, the event attracted a large crowd.
"This is our 24th year," Rabbi Raskin proclaimed as he welcomed myself, Mayor Anthony Housefather and Councilors Glenn J. Nashen,Steven Erdelyi and Allan J. Levine to the stage. The mayor gave greetings. It was a gorgeous evening for October 6. Performers Avraham Fried and Yossi Bayles had eveyone dancing horas.
Councillors Erdelyi, Levine and I even got into the act as organizers passed us torches. Beth Chabad will soon be moving into their new quarters at the corner of Kildare Road and Marc Chagall Avenue, across from Bialik High School. It is not yet finished, but their lease in the Cavendish Mall is up.
