I remeber our first time in Israel for Simha Torah, so amazing to see people dancing in the streets showing and sharing their joy!
Our Synagogue was full, the AC still doesn't work so the heat was almost unbareable.
The children were so excited and so were the parents. The Rabbi didn't have the time to finish begging the parents NOT to throw sweets from the balcony before all women, their hand in plastic bags started throwing. One sweet even hit rabbi's head. Our comunity is sepharadic and I sometiems wonder if it is calmer in ashkenazi synagogues.
The Rabbi got really angry, not because of the sweet that hit his front but because the children were trying to catch the sweets on the floor while the men were dancing and jumping, it is very dangerous, he is right.
