CHICAGO — It is a festive morning in west Rogers Park for Rabbi Dovid Kotlarsky, planning a day to spread love and unity to Jews and non-Jews alike in celebration of Sukkot.
He packed up the sukkah, a four-walled hut where celebrations take place, and for a second year in a row loaded it into a truck to go mobile and spread the message all across the area.
And where else would you go to make a celebration big these days? You go where all Chicago eyes and beyond are focused: Wrigleyville.
And so the Rabbi and his helpers took their sukkah to Clark and Addison before tonight’s big game, bringing the Jewish celebration to the baseball celebration.
The mobile sukkah will travel across Wrigleyville and Lakeview until the holiday’s end on Sunday. And while the idea is focused around the Jewish holiday, there is certainly plenty of love and hope going out to the team itself in the process.
