On 7 Adar, Moshe Rabeinu’s birthday, cement was poured into the ground of the large central synagogue in Grodno, Belarus forming the basin of a new Mikvah. Architect and Chabad expert on Mikvaos Rabbi Shmual Levin was present to ensure it was done with all the stringencies and in the best possible way.
After the ceremony, Rabbi Levin led those attending from the local Jewish community on guided tour of the premises, all the while informing them of the Halachic intricacies of the Mikvah, as well as it’s paramount importance in Judaism, as related by our sages in countless episodes throughout the ages, and the extreme self-sacrifice endured by many to keep this special Mitzvah.
