Packed House
Each day of the holiday, the shul was packed with men, women and children and many guests who had come to Mequon for the Holidays. The services were lively and filled with song, the feeling and joy of Yom Tov was in the air. Due to the large crowd, it took extra effort to include everyone in the cutsomary circling of the Bima with the Lulav & Esrog each day.

For the 3rd Hakafah the Torahs were all held by those who had served in the IDF and the energy level and the dancing was incredible!
