One of the highlights of Tishrei in Crown Heights is the Simchas Beis Hashoeva celebrations. Every night of Sukkos, hundreds gather to dance in the street, accompanied by lively singing, and on Chol Hamoed, by a full band.

This year, however, with coronavirus health regulations preventing large gatherings, the classic Simchas Beis Hashoeva will be unable to take place. As reported on, organizers came up with a unique solution.

“We will be having a music truck circling the neighborhood, allowing each family to celebrate from their home, at a safe distance from others and involving no health risk,” Rabbi Shemtov told

The trucks would be driving around Crown Heights every night of Chol Hamoed, starting on Monday. It will begin at 6:30 and end at 9:45 pm Monday-Thursday night.

Organizers told that besides for the band, other surprises are being planned. Stay tuned for details.
