    Great! I’m sure alot of people who have stopped going to mikvah because of the shambles that this mikvah is in, will once again go.

    If every family in Crown heights would give a donation starting from $18 and up, however much you can afford, the renovation will be finished in no time.
    Everyone open up your wallets or write out a check NOW!

    shambles? (to #1)

    It’s clean and pleasant there. Renovations are nice, but I wouldn’t call the current state “shambles.” Unless you’ve found a toad in the mikvah or mud in the showers, please don’t use exaggerated terms.

    to comment #1- people who stopped going to mikvah!
    what do you mean by that comment. Have some pity on the future of your holy children. Going to the mikvah brings brochos and healthy children. WOMAN AND MEN: GET EDUCATED ON THIS IMPORTANT MITzVAH THAT THE FRIERDIKER REBBE WENT ON MESIRAS NEFESH FOR- TO BUILD MIKVAHS.
    ok, so its not a five star hotel here, but its manageable.
    Your not living there, just visiting for a good thing.

    Thank you for everyone who have been taking care of the Mikvah all these years. Yes, like every house that gets well used, after years of heavy usage, the Mikvah could use renovations. Utmost gratitude is due to the dedicated women who have undertaken to make this happen. I have thought about it many times over the years, about how we really should get involved in updating our Mikvah, just like we update our houses, but I did not actually do anything about it. So, thank you very much to those women who have undertaken to make it happen –… Read more »

    Where do you come from?? The mikvah experience is extremely unpleasant, to put it mildly. I, for one, am so thankful to see that a committee is making the Union Mikvah more beautiful and pleasant for all. Why do all Chabad Houses have beautiful mikvahs and here in the headquarters of Chabad we have something old and ugly?!

    poor excuse. there are plenty of other mikvaos around should someone truly wish to go- and were not comf. here. the purity of your family should be worth a little more than some minor discomfort. don’t let the yetzer Hara get you on that one- please…

    What number 1 meant

    What number 1 meant

    I believe #1 meant the people who stopped using THIS Mikvah and instead went to say Brooklyn Heights etc. Not that they stopped going altogether. People please stop getting so dramatic and use your heads to understand what the commenter meant.

    please explain yourself very clearly because it sounds terrible what you wrote… and if it is what it sound like… you should pack your bags and get the… out of CH!! respectfully.

    If every woman who uses the mikvah lives a small donation ($10-50) for the construction, the’ll be able to raise some nice cash during the next year or so.

    where to donate?

    u may be right about #1, but the way she worded it, did not make it easy to come to any other conclusion.

    Sold 770?

    Sold 770?

    Malamud told COLlive the Rebbe once sold 770 Eastern Parkway through a local realtor to raise the funds to build the Mikvah the first time it was built.

    Can someone explain? Sold 770?

    I have been to the Crown heights mikvah and once actually saw a cockroach as I was about to dip! Nevermind all the hair that is always floating around the top of the water! And yes, there are some who prevent themselves from going to mikvah through certain means due to the uncleanliness of this mikvah and not being able to go to any other! Why is it that (until now maybe?) Crown Heights, which serves more people than any other community has the most outdated and unclean mikvah, compared to every little town with a state of the art… Read more »

    funds for the mikvah renovations

    everyone should participate monetarily as much as they are able to, but let’s be realistic; this project, like most renovation projects,is unavoidably far more costly than many imagine.everyone is working on this l’shem mitzvah,not for personal gain.please be as generous as possible with your contributions.

    ITS ABOUT TIME!!!!

    is this the 5th or 6th time we hear about renovations? there is no excuse for the way the mikvah looks. $2 million? c’mon that is definitely exaggerated. they are only renovating. how much can that cost? maybe they are hiring a ‘fancy’ interior decorator on our chesbon?

    The article says something about new rooms. From what I hear they are planning a whole new wing. This would certainly help speed things up – a good thing.

    The holy Mikvah has not been renovated for years. Now we are going to do it, and some mediocre CH residents write here that It’s ok, it’s fine to live in an unpleasant house, neighborhood car etc.

    Yeah! Go mediocrity!
