It was a veritable Sukkot miracle at the President’s Residence in Jerusalem on Wednesday.
President Shimon Peres was hosting a gathering in his sukkah, when a gust of wind knocked over a sign bearing the state emblem of the menorah, and a large potted plant, both of which landed on the 89-year-old statesman.
The president’s bodyguards sped to Peres’s rescue, only to discover that the rush was unnecessary — the president was fine.
Shaking off the incident — and the falling objects — Peres continued to host the holiday celebration within the protected confines of the presidential sukkah.
