A second Mikva is now avaialble in St. Petersburg
Until recently, the Grand Choral Synagogue was the only place in St. Petersburg with a Mikva available for ritual immersions. However, one mikva in the whole town didn't seem to be sufficient for our rapidly growing Jewish community.
But now things have changed.
On December 17, 2014 a brand new mikva opened for community members at the Jewish Community Center “Maor” near the subway station of "Lesnaya". The Opening Ceremony turned out to be attended by Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi of Israel, Mr. David Lau.
From now on, people wouldn't have to travel all the way across town to enjoy practicing one of the major commandments of our Faith. New mikva makes all the difference.
