Despite tropical storm Irene, this year’s Upstate Chabad Lake George Minyan served thousands of 87 Northway Montreal-to-NYC travelers and vacationers.
Special thanks was given to the minyan’s founder Rabbi Abba Rubin of Saratoga Chabad, who was assisted this year by Merkos Shluchim Roving Yisroel Levenholtz and Mendy Perlman.
Many hundreds inscribed themselves in the new 87 Travelers Torah being written, to be dedicated this Chanukah in Albany www.thruwaytorah.blogspot.com
“It’s so beautiful how the Lake George Minyan unites Jews of different Minhagim and Nusachs, all under one tent,” said Rabbi Pesach Krohn, the Maggid Speaks.
Eytan Kobre, U.S. editor of Mishpacha magazine, wrote about it in his column this week.
