The door to door campaign swung by Shalom Avenue yesterday. I had such a good time chatting with residents that I ran out of time and didn’t finish the block as some residents scurried of to synagogue for the Shmini Atzeret holiday.
“I’ll just be a minute,” I said to one rushed resident.
“I can’t complain that quick,” he responded.
He caught me off guard as I thought I was about to get an earful. He was just kidding.
“I love it here. I’ve lived elsewhere but Cote Saint-Luc is the absolute best,” the resident said as he hurried off.
Happy holidays, chag sameach to all who are celebrating during this joyous festival.
