Yom Truck (Truck Day) at Shaarey Zedek

On Sunday, Aug. 20, more than 400 people enjoyed the Shaarey Zedek Yom Truck (truck day) museum. Children and their parents were able to sit in a firetruck, meet Southfield firefighters, learn about what they do and receive firefighters’ hats. They played in a S.W.A.T. mobile unit and climbed on tractors. They honked the horn of the big green Tamarack bus and heard the sirens of an ambulance.

They also visited a DTE truck, a limousine, an excavator and listened to the music of Star Trax. Train rides around the parking lot were a highlight of the day. Families brought canned food donations and filled a Forgotten Harvest truck, enjoyed Kona ice cool treats and jumped in a construction bounce house.

Yom Truck was sponsored by Congregation Shaarey Zedek in Southfield and co-sponsored by Hillel Day School in Farmington Hills.
