Tens of thousands of pekelach were distributed to hundreds of kehillos in Jerusalem on Thursday evening, the 2nd day of Chol Hamoed in Israel, for Simchas Torah.

The distribution was carried out at the initiative of Jerusalem City Councilman Dovid Blumentstock (Degel HaTorah), with the support of Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion.

Simchas Torah will be celebrated this year in Israel on Monday night and Tuesday.

  1. I agree that as an unusual move, this may rate as news on an otherwise slow day, BUT the physical damage this gimmick will have on those children should also be noted. Not enough that the children have missed weeks of cheder, and have had their regular schedules messed up for weeks, but are now the subject of some ridiculous and pointless gimmick.
