Most of all, I think people are happy to see our heritage being celebrated openly and proudly.”

From New York to Missoula - Spreading the Jewish Faith
KPAX News,Wednesday, October 08, 2014

Three Wheels and Three Walls: New York’s Tricycle Sukkahs
JTA,Wednesday, October 08, 2014
...The bikes have come a long way. Duchman now works with a manufacturer to create an easy-to-assemble pedi-sukkah. He even created a “menorah cycle” for Chanukah, and a “mitzvah cycle” affixed with a banner that encourages others to lay tefillin and light Shabbat candles (because it’s never a bad time to ride a bike and do good deeds). Between the cost of the materials and the pedicab itself, one bike goes for nearly $2,000. But Duchman charges exactly what it costs him. “It’s not a business,” he said. “It’s a way to spread awareness. Baruch hashem.”
