New Mikvah Construction Begins

Tractors are lined up at Mikvah Mei Chaya Mushka's future site, as digging will begin tomorrow for the building of Crown Heights' new Mikvah.

By COLlive Reporter

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

To mail your donation send to: Mikvah Mei Chaya Mushka, 383 Kingston Avenue, POB 228, Brooklyn, NY 11213.

Wonderful News!
A beautiful blessing for this community.

May all those who contribute to this wonderful project, either through time and money, be repaid by He who repays community activists.

Please contribute! The great merit for helping to complete this project even one day earlier is truly unfathomable!

No need to create another reason of dispute
This is a Simcha and not a place for politics
I can assure you either Rabbonim it is Kosher
Rabonim for the 2 sides are God Fearing Yiden so join the dance

The writer has a valid question and this is the forum in which to ask a general question. No-one is trying to attack you or the mikva. Please stop trying to cause machlokes.
