This year’s Bnei Brak 4 minim shuk will be held in Armonot Chen (ארמונות חן) Hall, which organizers explain is air conditioned, large and the event will be held on the main floor towards guaranteeing easier access. Tens of thousands of lulavim and esrogim will be offered for sale, including an array of hashgachas, both open and sealed items.
In addition, there will be ornaments for one’s sukka and palm branches for schach.
According to the Yom L’Yom weekly, the event was arranged to eliminate the need for residents of the Torah city to remain outdoors in the heat, where the 4 minim are also damaged as a result of the harsh climate conditions. Organizers explain the hall will offer all the supplies one needs for kiyum mitzvos of the yomtov as well as one’s sukka and decorations.
The Sukkos Shuk will open on motzei Yom Kippur and remain open until erev Sukkos without interruption.
