The meals were open to all, and many poor and needy individuals from around Moscow joined the meals in the sukkah and in other sukkahs around the city.

Following the official part of the meals, the participants headed out to dance on city streets to celebrate Simchas Bais Hashoeiva, as is customary.

During Yom Tov, many shiurim were also held in the shul, and many locals took advantage of the time to come and study Torah.
