Brookln, NY – Dozens of members from the Orthodox community of Park Slope gathered Monday to attend the ribbon-cutting celebrating the opening of the William and Betty Katz Center for Jewish Life which now houses Park Slope’s first ‘mikvah.’
DNAinfo.com (http://bit.ly/131bWn2) is reporting that the 15th Street building now features a women’s mikvah, replete with elegant lighting, candles and a trickling waterfall on a subterranean level, as well as a men’s mikvah on the first floor.
Guests said that it is always worthy of a “big” celebration whenever a mikvah is built because it means more couples are getting married and starting families.
“it means we are thriving,” said one guest.
