On July 1 at 7:30 p.m., the Cobb County Jewish Community will make history at a groundbreaking ceremony at Chabad of Cobb for its first mikvah.
A mikvah is a Jewish ritual pool that is central to Jewish life, and part of 3,500 years of Jewish tradition. Its primary function today is part of the family purity laws and serves to enhance and bring sanctity to the intimate lives of husbands and wives.
“Jewish tradition teaches that a mikvah is more critical to the needs of the community than the synagogue itself. So this truly marks a major development and step forward for the local Jewish community” said Rabbi Ephraim Silverman, director of Chabad of Cobb.
