Foundation Supports New Mikvah

Most Jews see the synagogue as the central institution in Jewish life, but Jewish law states that constructing a mikvah takes precedence. Both a synagogue and a Torah scroll, Judaism’s most venerated treasures, may be sold to raise funds for the building of a mikvah.  The Foundation Board unanimously approved a Grants Committee recommendation that all contributions for the soon-to-be-constructed community mikvah be matched dollar for dollar, up to $100,000.
