On Sunday Chol haMoed Succot students from St Andrews university hosted a Succot celebration with
the participation of members of Dundee shul and support from SCoJeC. For the occasion, the students
had obtained a commercially-produced Succah that went up easily, bent easily into the shape of a banana, fell
down even more easily, and was eventually secured with enough skilled labour power to revive the Clyde shipyards!
Elkan Levy, director of the Office for Small Communities, arrived with a lulav and etrog, neither of which is commonly found in Fife, and several participants fulfilled the mitzvah (and not, as the photographs might suggest, a class in Basic Camouflage!).
Dundee and St Andrews groups are hopeful that combining forces – the large number of students
with the smaller permanent community – and we hope this will lay thefoundations for a wide range of new activities.
