The Jewish side of Niagara Falls is booming again—thanks to the return of tourists

From the Canadian Jewish News:

Tourists, and especially Orthodox tourists, are flocking back to Niagara Falls this summer after a long COVID hiatus.

“Tourism is booming here. From our perspective, it’s basically back to pre-COVID levels,” said Rabbi Zalman Zaltzman in an email.

Rabbi Zaltzman runs the Chabad house in Niagara Falls, along with his wife Perla—and summer is the busiest time for them. They provide three Shabbat meals every weekend, host a kosher restaurant in their welcome centre, run a minyan, handle large groups of visitors, assist with local emergencies involving Jewish people, and provide programming for the local community including running a day camp.
