Family members traveling between New York and Canada for Chol Hamoed Sukkos will greatly benefit from the installation of a Sukkah on the I-87, thanks to the assistance of renowned askan and New York State Police Chaplain Rabbi Berish Freilich.
The Sukkah is immediately next to the State Police barracks at the I-87 northbound rest area in Clifton Park. Employees of the rest stop will ensure that the Sukkah is kept clean, while males are permitted to eat there and women and kids are permitted to eat inside.
There are also many minyanim for mincha and maariv, as well as a separate sink for males to wash up in.
Many families are anticipated to travel the 7.5-hour distance between New York and Montreal, Canada, over this year’s lengthy holiday.
Those families will have a place to rest and refuel during the protracted journey, thanks to the Sukkah.
