I work around the corner from the Lindt Cafe, and we have been evacuated. Please bear in mind, that we are 6 days away from the summer solstice, and being 78F, and outdoors without air conditioning, is very uncomfortable.
By the way, I did not have time to grab my briefcase with my Chanukah candles inside it, so looking as perhaps I shall have to purchase replacement Chanukah candles.
I feel for you 147 stay strong, stay safe, and keep us posted please.
I think that the weather should be your least of your concerns.
By happy and thankful that were not in the Cafe when all of this happened.
My Chavrusa’s son is having a date today Wednesday late afternoon [so that he can come home in time for 2nd candle-lighting approximately 8.50Pm @Tzeis}. The young gentleman has already told me, that he is Davka taking his date to Lindt cafe, as an act of solidarity,
