Taharas Hamishpacha is one of the most fundamental and far-reaching mitzvos, affecting virtually all areas of life, particularly those of marital peace and family unity.

In an effort to make it easier for women from Crown Heights and the surrounding Jewish communities to fulfill this important mitzvah in a dignified and comfortable environment, the Crown Heights community is in the process of building the new and luxurious Mikvah Mei Chaya Mushka. To help raise funds for the construction of the new Mikvah, its founders are hosting a fun-filled evening of entertainment and education.

Thanks to the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Mendel and Chani Drizin who are sponsoring the event in honor of the first yahrtzeit of Rebbetzin Rochel bas Reb Avraham (Drizin) Pinson, every dollar raised at the event will go directly to building the Mikvah without being reduced by overhead and administrative costs. As a result, each and every dollar contributed is significant.

The event, which will take place on November 18, 2012, at the Jewish Children’s Museum, will feature performances by Mordechai Ben David and The Freilach Band, as well as a comedy routine by the world-renowned Jewish comedian and actor Modi, who was recently voted one of the top ten comedians in New York City by a number of popular publications. Featured speakers will include Rabbi Yosef Yitzchok Jacobson and Rabbi Shimon Freundlich from Beijing, China.

The plans for Mikvah Mei Chaya Mushka include eight modernly-designed, beautifully-furnished preparation rooms and two elegant mikvah pools, designed by Maggie Rogatsky of Haute Couture Design. In the words of Ms. Rogatsky, the Mikvah will be “the most luxurious and state-of-the-art mikvah ever built.”

Rabbi Moshe Pinson, founder and president of Mikvah Mei Chaya Mushka, expressed how crucial the community’s help is in bringing this groundbreaking project to completion. "After many months of hard work, we are nearing the finish line. What we need now is the entire community’s financial support to bring this vital project to fruition. With the community's participation, Crown Heights residents will soon be the proud beneficiaries of a new and unique mikvah."

May the new Mikvah be a source of bracha and success in all areas of life for Crown Heights and the surrounding Jewish communities, and in the merit of Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka, the Mikvah’s namesake, may the Redemption come speedily.

I don't understand that the hole CH community can't scrap together money for a mikvah! Every family should by give at least some money toward the mikvah

It's amazing to me that almost every place there is a shliach there are beautiful Chabad Houses, Mikvaos, Day schools etc. Yet right here where thousands of frum live, eat and breath, where the rebbe lived and continues to live inside of us. Pinson has a struggle to get this done.. Why can we have nice institutions as well? people find money to to drive nice cars, have second homes in the country, third homes in Israel, yet we can't get another mikveh built here!!! what is wrong??

give $$
I agree with the other comments.All it takes is people to give some maaser money to get this done. Its a large community- shouldnt be that difficult. In the end everyone will benefit- both the new and old mikvah who will be able to better service everyone due to reduced taffic.Lets do this people! Either join the event or send in a donation of as much as you can afford.
