The Old Westbury Story

This Long Island village is located in an area with approximately 10,000 Jews, where there are strong pockets of anti-Semitism amongst the local non-Jewish populace and municipal government. The village prided itself on not having issued a permit for a Jewish community building in seventy five years. Several years ago, the indefatigable Rabbi Aaron Konikov sued the village for discrimination and won the right to build a mikvah. Currently, the closest mikvah is in Merrick – also a Mikvah USA project – but even some observant locals do not travel the distance. Construction for the new mikvah is underway, and many locals who do not currently observe taharah have already expressed their eagerness to observe once they have an attractive local mikvah. No government official or hate filled resident can stem the rising tide of taharah in Old Westbury!
