FIRE on ICE LITERALLY!

This Motzei Shabbos was the first night of Chanukah, Chanukah is the time to spread the light all over the world, and what a great way to spread the light than to spread it throughout the central area of Mitzoim, Kings Highway, a local area for Russian, and Israeli Jews. It is also an area for elderly people to walk around and shop in Fruit stores.

While most are familiar with Chabad of Flatbush’s Colorful Mitzvah Tank, This is probably the FIRST time they have ever seen a 10 foot ICE MENORAH! Many heads were turned as they were walking or driving down the street. An area where many young Russian teens, and young adults hang out on a Saturday Night has turned their heads to pay attention to the lighting, and even participating by saying “Amen” Donuts, Latkes, and Menorahs were handed out to the people participating in this event.

The event was called “Fire on Ice” Which has a double meaning to it, first, it was literally FIRE on ICE, and second, while many think “how is it possible to have fire: a hot element, on top of cool ice without it melting?” Well, it shows that it is possible to practice any mitzvah regardless of the circumstances, we don’t have to understand it. Rabbi Liberov and Rabbi Chanoch Chaskind really helped spread the light throughout the entire Flatbush area, and continue to do so each and every day.

You can find their Mitzvah Tank out and running on Kings Highway near the B&Q Train Station, and their Chabad House on N & Ocean Ave.
