All 3 members of the Crown Heights Beis Din came Thursday to the corner of Lefferts and Troy Avenues to inspect the building site of the new Mikvah Mei Chaya Mushka.
Rabbi Avrohom Osdoba, Rabbi Yaacov Schwei and Rabbi Yosef Braun toured together and heard from renowned Mikvah experts Rabbi Yirmi Katz and Elozar Raichik.
The 3 rabbis watched as the concrete was poured and then discussed halachic and construction aspects of the Mikvah that is being described by its interior designer Maggie Rogatsky as “a prototype for beautiful facilities for many years to come.”
Rabbi Katz described the Mikvah – which will be only bor al gabei bor, as the Chabad custom – as one that will be “one of the most mehudar Mikvos in the United States.”
The visit was truly unique as the Badatz members are known for their differences since the last election was held in September 2010 to add a third rabbi to the rabbinical court.
It was the first time the three made a planned joined public appearance. But R’ Moshe Pinson, the force behind the Mikvah, said this should not come as a surprise.
“When it comes to building a Mikvah, everyone makes peace,” he told COLlive.com. “They know the great importance of a Mikvah and together called on people to give as much as possible to we can open it on Chof Beis Shvat.”
