Executives at Terminal 4 of the JFK Airport in New York were present to officially inaugurate the Chabad Sukkah - for the first time at any airport in the US.

On Monday, third day of Chol HaMoed, a historic event took place at JFK airport.

Until this year, there has never been an official Sukkah at an airport in the USA. This year, thanks to the continuous activities and relationships developed by Chabad at the airport, there is an official Sukkah at JFK.

To commemorate this historic occurrence, a special event was organized by Rabbi Yossi Rapp, shliach to the airport. In attendance were special dignitaries including Mr. Gert-Jan de Graaff, president of Terminal 4 and Ms. Susana Chuna, the VP of operations for the terminal.

The assembled heard words of appreciation and explanation of the Yom-Tov of Sukkos from Rabbi Rapp. In addition, they were addressed by Rabbi Gershon Avtzon of Cincinnati, Ohio and the airport chaplain, and dear friend of Chabad, Rabbi Ari Korenblit. All left strengthened in their commitment to add in acts of goodness and kindness to bring Moshiach.

Chabad at the airport would like to thank all those that made this possible and the continuous dedication of the many volunteers that come daily to help thousands do a Mitzva enroute to Eretz Yisroel.
