Construction has begun on the new Crown Heights Mikvah Mei Chaya Mushka, COLlive has learned.
Tractors are lined up at the Mikvah’s future site this Monday evening, as digging will begin tomorrow for the building of a brand new state-of-the-art Mikvah for the Crown Heights community.
“After many months of planning and hard work, we are finally starting this long-awaited project,” Moshe Pinson, the project’s director told COLlive.
The new building, which is expected to take between 15 and 18 months to complete, was undertaken by members of Bais Shmuel-Chabad congregation, but will be a welcome resource for the entire Crown Heights community
Pinson says the project has received an incredible outpouring of support. After sending out a mailing to Crown Heights residents and Shluchim, over 500 people responded with donations to help fund the project.
“We got support not only from local Crown Heights residents,” he says. “We got from Shluchim across the US, from Florida to California.”
Dedications are still available, he says. To donate, go to www.mikvahcm.org.
