Beth Sholom Home celebrates Succos, Shemini Atzeret and Simchas Torah By Ruth S. Rothman Director of Community Relations The holiday of Succos is always a very festive holiday at Beth Sholom Home of Eastern Virginia. This year was no differ- ent. While the Home's Mainte- nance Department erected the Suc- cah, many residents assisted the Activities Department in making decorations to hang in the Succah. On the first two days of Succos, Lenny Goodman and Brad Lazer- nick conducted holiday services, afterwhich a kiddush- was held at the Succah and everyone had a chance to say the prayer while shaking the lulav and esrog. Dur- ing the intervening days, Rabbi Sholom Mustofsky, of B'nai Israel Congregation and head of the Va'ad Hakashrus of Tidewater, went from unit to unit giving ail the residents an opportunity to bensch with the lulav and esrog. Many of the residents commented on the fact that they don't remem- ber having shaken a lulav and esrog since childhood. Everyday, a different group of residents had the privilege of hav- ing lunch in the Succah, and on Thursday, 8th graders from Hebrew Academy of Tidewater joined residents in some activities followed by lunch. While this activity is busy for staff, residents love the change in their normal routine and thrive on the festive atmosphere. On Sunday, Oct. 11, 16 mem- bers of Chabad Lubavitch came to the Home to afford yet another opportunity for the residents to participate in the mitzvah of shak- ing the lulav and esrog and recit- ing the blessing. It was a truly wonderful holiday for the resi- dents. Services were held on Shemini Atzeret, during which time resi- dents participated in the Yizkor service, and on Monday evening, Simchat Torah services were con- ducted by Lenny Goodman and Brad Lazernick. In the morning of Simchas Torah. 14 of the Home's residents and three staff members went to Beth E1 Temple for services, in what has become a tradition over the past five or more years. The residents thoroughly enjoyed being part of the synagogue setting, hav- ing an aliyah, enjoying a festive luncheon in Myers Hall and seeing friends.
