For the third year, thanks to the efforts of Rabbi Chesky Tenenbaum, director of the Jewish Uniformed Service Association of Maryland-Chabad, a Sukkah was built at Aberdeen Proving Ground, a U.S. Army facility located adjacent to Aberdeen in Harford County, Maryland.
Aberdeen Proving Ground is one of the most diversified military installations in the United States and the work that takes place at this 72,000-acre complex touches almost every aspect of U.S. military operations.
The Sukka is located in the courtyard of the main Chapel on base, and is available for use by the Jewish members of APG throughout the days of Chol Hamoed, as well as a Sukka party that was hosted on the second day of Chol Hamoed.
JUSA would like to thank Chaplain (MAJ) Denise A. Hagler, Installation Deputy Garrison Chaplain and her office for all their help and assistance.
