The first new mikvah built in Estonia since World War II opened in the capital of Tallinn.
Some 100 guests attended a small ceremony Aug. 28 marking the opening of the The Mei Menachem Mikvah, according to a report by the Chabad.org news service. All the guests were Jewish women married to Jewish men.
Estonia has been without a mikvah since its predecessor was destroyed, along with its synagogues, by the Nazis. The country's first new synagogue since the war opened in Tallinn in May.
The mikvah, located in the Beit Bella Synagogue, is the next step in the process of revitalizing Jewish life in this tiny Baltic nation, Estonia's Chief Rabbi Shmuel Kot told JTA.
