First mikveh in Montana opens
May 7, 2009
(JTA) — The state of Montana has its first mikveh.
The newly built ritual bath is serving Jewish residents from Wyoming, Idaho, North and South Dakota, and the Canadian provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan, in addition to the 2,500-strong Jewish population of Montana, according to Chabad.org.
The mikveh, in the backyard of the Chabad House in Bozeman, took two years to build. One ritual pool adjoins an elaborate bathroom with a custom vanity, Jacuzzi tub, chandeliers and Venetian mosaic tiles.
“This is a milestone to Jewish life in Montana and is totally beyond our expectations,” said Chavie Bruk, co-director with her husband of Chabad-Lubavitch of Montana.
