A special sukkah was built on Erev Yom Tov for COVID patients in the courtyard outside the coronavirus wards at Assaf HaRofeh Hospital in Rishon L’Tzion.

Rav Harel Padida, the Rav of Assaf HaRofeh, and Rav Mendy Bekerman, the director of the hospital’s Chabad center, built the sukkah while wearing full protective clothing.

This is the second year that the hospital built a sukkah for coronavirus patients, with the one built last year the first sukkah in the world built especially for coronavirus patients.

  1. Sweden now ranks 40th in per capita death rates. They went from 12th down to 40th in eleven months. Peru, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Paraguay, Belgium, Italy, Mexico, Croatia, the United Kingdom, the United States, Poland, Chile, Spain, Romania, Uruguay, Portugal, France, South Africa all rank ahead of Sweden (more deaths per capita). Nearly every one of them has tried masks and lockdowns and to this point it’s resulted in a “net failure” in terms of “death and suffering” compared to Sweden.
    Israel should consider some of this perspective instead of laying down to be Boula’s (head of Pfizer) lab rats.
