    For many years, overhanging branches along streets bordering Washington Cemetery and Greenwood Cemetery, located on the outskirts of Boro Park and Midwood, have prevented Kohanim from traveling along these roads. They were forced to use alternate routes because of the halachic issue of tumah.

    Due to the persistent and staunch advocacy of Assemblyman Simcha Eichenstein, and under the strict guidance of Rabbi Yitzchok Stein Shlita, Supervisor of Va’ad Mishmeres Kahuna and Rosh Bais Din of Foltichen, the office of Assemblyman Simcha Eichenstein announced that the trees were recently trimmed and Kohanim will now be able to travel on the following street lanes along the cemeteries.

    One of the areas trimmed was Fort Hamilton Parkway, a vital artery that runs from Parkside Ave directly to Boro Park and Maimonides Hospital.

    Washington Cemetery

    Bay Parkway between East 3rd Street and McDonald Avenue: Outside lane (cemetery side) only

    Bay Parkway between McDonald Avenue and 57th Street: Outside lanes in both directions

    20th Avenue between 54th and 57th Streets: Both directions

    Ocean Parkway between Avenue J and Avenue: Southbound service lane

    Greenwood Cemetery

    McDonald Avenue between 20th Avenue and Fort Hamilton Parkway: Both driving lanes (not

    parking lane) along the cemetery

    Fort Hamilton Parkway between McDonald Avenue and 37th Street: Both lanes
