Rest Stop on the I-87 has Sukkah for Travelers

By Hamodia Staff

New York State Police Chaplain Rabbi Berish Freilich informed Hamodia that the NYS Department of Transportation has granted a permit to erect a sukkah at the Clifton Park rest stop, located between exit 9 and exit 10 on route 87 North in Saratoga County near the New York State Police barracks.

Although the sukkah has been available in previous years, Rabbi Freilich said with many people expressing interest this year in the sukkah, it will be expanded to accommodate numerous travelers going between New York and Montreal. This sukkah, which will be maintained by rest stop employees to ensure its cleanliness, will have ample room for the men to eat, with a sink available for them to wash as well.

Women can eat indoors in the rest area facility, and bathroom facilities are available for all to use as well.

Minyanim for minchah and maariv will take place in the sukkah throughout Chol Hamoed.
