Community Mikvah Announcment

Dear Friends,

Having a mikvah that is clean and welcoming, located in a safe and close area, is vital for a Jewish community. It is time that our community join so many others in building a proper facility that can be used by the women of today and in the future. 
Come take your share in this monumental project of purity. 

Rabbi Yechiel Biberfeld
