Gmar chasima tova!


Dear Akiva;

Here is the scoop; I sell a mobile sink, supremely suitable for Sukkos. It is ideal for washing hands in the Sukkah without going back and forth to the house or hauling water in bowls. In fact, you can fill it just once in the beginning of Yomtov and have it last throughout the entire holiday! (Obviously, this depends on the size of your family!)

This is also the solution for people who need a sink for older people who would rather have the sink rolled to them than walk to the sink, someone who would like to fill his bedside hand-washing water once a month instead of every day, individuals that wish to wash hands in the dining room itself and so on.

Here is a direct link to my website, where you can read up on this new invention, and see for yourself how it works
