Community Board Rejects Ohel Bus Stop

| |

Community Board 13 in Cambria Heights, Queens voted down a proposal by Ohel Chabad-Lubavitch for a charter bus stop near Montefire Cemetery. The unanimous vote comes two weeks after residents rejected, also unanimously, the charter bus stop at a public hearing. The final decision rests with the City’s Department of Transportation.

From the Queens Chronicle:
Community Board 13 on Monday voted down a proposal by an area synagogue for a charter bus stop near the cemetery where the sect’s founder is buried.

Hundreds of pilgrims, members of Congregation Ohel Chabad Lubavitch, located at 226-20 Francis Lewis Blvd., visit the adjacent Montefiore Cemetery each day and thousands stop by on special religious occasions to pray and reflect near the graves of the sect’s leader, the late Rebbe Menachem Schneerson, and his father-in-law, Yosef Schneersohn, the prior rebbe.
