(Courtesy of Bris Avrohom) Bris Avrohom runs a daily information stand inside Newark International Airport on a daily basis where hundreds of people pass by, have the opportunity to put on tefillin, daven Mincha, get the weekly thought, obtain information about the Jewish holidays and, most importantly, the Tefilat Haderech prayer for travelers.

This stand gives the primary opportunity for so many youngsters who are traveling to Israel for the first time to don tefillin, thus beginning their connection with God, Torah and mitzvot, and the Land of Israel.

The stand’s director and coordinator, Rabbi Avremy Kanelsky of Bris Avrohom, as well as its volunteers are always there to greet the travelers with a smile and wish them a safe trip.
