Askanim have requested that the public refrain from forming minyanim in the Ramapo Service Area on the way back from the Catskill region Sunday evenings.
“The area is between car and truck lanes and it is very dangerous,” said Rabbi Berish Freilich, a liaison to the police department. “The area is private property, we have no permission to use it and it causes a chillul Hashem. Please either daven before you leave the country or in Monsey which is only a few miles after the rest area.”
The issue was brought to Rabbi Freilich’s attention by the highway authorities who have requested strongly that community askanim do their utmost to let the public know not to daven in the area.
