GWC2D Succah Hop - Lincoln Park Jewish Center

We spent some time yesterday in Yonkers at the Simchas Beis Hashoeva of the Lincoln Park Jewish Center. Little did we know that it would double as a surprise Lechayim, when the Rabbi got up and passed out cups of champagne. He joyfully announced to all those assembled that his father had just become engaged to one of the shul's favorite members!

This "green" succah (think eco-friendly, not pine needles) was built by the Rabbi, along with his father, brother and another shul member and uses solar powered lights, recycled wood and wood from sustainable forests.

If you look closely on the floorboards (it would be easier if the tables weren't set up already) you can see a portion of the menorah that was inlaid into the floor design.
