Students of the Amit Ashdod Yeshiva mobilized to build a sukkah for everyone who needed help: isolated people, the elderly, the sick and anyone who asked for help

Despite the corona, this year too the students of the Amit Ashdod Yeshiva did not give up on the mitzvah of building the sukkah and mobilized to build a sukkah for everyone who needed help, the elderly, the sick and anyone who turned to them for help. They divided into teams, came to the houses and happily helped. Sometimes a group built several Sukkot in one day. In some cases, they also recruited a sukkah for those who did not, with the help of cooperation with parents.
“We received calls from people coming out of isolation on the eve of the holiday and could not build at the last minute. There were cases of family members who are far away and can not help the elderly father as every year. They just thank us non-stop for help,” described Ziv Hassan, the yeshiva’s social coordinator.

Yonatan Hotovli, a 12th grade student, said: “One of the people told us that if we had not come, he would not have built a sukkah this year. Another man was so impressed and said he wanted to go back to our age and help us also build sukkahs for others that are difficult for them.”
Rabbi Shalom Malul, Rosh Yeshiva concluded: “It’s exciting to see our righteous students get involved. Glad that despite the situation, they are not giving up on the important tradition and doing true kindness.”
