סוכות בירושלים קובי הר צבי

Ultra-Orthodox residents of the city of Montreal, Canada struggled to celebrate the festival of Simchas Torah properly: municipal inspectors knocked on the doors of many Jewish homes during Simchas Torah, and ordered them to immediately dismantle the 'shed', making clear that dissolution will result in a fine of $400 Canadian.

According to the law in the city - a temporary structure may be erected for a period not exceeding ten days.

Community activists protested, claiming inspectors that they may not break the sukkah during the holiday, and requested a two-day extension. Indeed, the request was granted and the extension ended this evening (Thursday).

However, city officials have been acting at the municipal to change the law - to avoid a recurrence of the incident in the coming years; they said there is no such limitation in other cities in Canada.
