The number of participants in sedorim in Thailand jumped by 30%, with a grand total of 4,187 Yidden fulfilling the mivtzos of the Seder night. Shluchim across Thailand hosted large Sedorim, with 1,500 guests joining the public Seder at Bais Chabad Ko Samui.
Preparations for the huge crowds began months before, presided over by Head Shliach Rabbi Yosef Chaim Kantor, together with the Shluchim to cities across Thailand and many volunteers. The guests enjoyed sedorim with first class gashmius as well as ruchnius, with the same warmth and Ahavas Yisroel that make Chabad across Thailand a favorite venue for tourists and backpackers.
Rabbi Kantor reminisces about his very first Sedorim: In 5752, when The Rebbe sent me, along with a staff of three, to Thailand to conduct Sedorim for Israelis, we hosted a few dozen guests. Today, after 25 years, we have ten Shluchim families and dozens of volunteers, and have multipliedby 100! We are here all year around for each and every Yid visiting Thailand and are happy to assist them b'gashmius and ruchnius.
