Edgware Lubavitch has received planning permission from Barnet Council for the construction of a permanent brick building to house the mikveh at the rear of its Hale Lane premises.
It replaces a wooden cabin which was destroyed by fire last year, al-though the ritual bath itself escaped damage and has continued in use inside a temporary structure.
The new building will be twice the size of its predecessor and, for the first time, will allow the mikveh to be used by women as well as men, although only on Friday nights.

Edgware Reform congregants have said prayers for the recovery of associate minister Rabbi Neil Kraft following his "massive" heart attack.
The American-born rabbi is in Northwick Park Hospital after collapsing at home.
Members were told at the Shabbat morning service. "It came as a huge shock to us," said one congregant, "especially as Rabbi Kraft had been the life and soul of all our recent 75th anniversary celebrations".

Barnet Council has received complaints over admissions to the nursery of Rosh Pinah School in Edgware for September.
The JC has been unable to confirm the reasons for the objections although one local parent claimed that the two-form entry school had failed to abide by its admissions rules. Governors' chair Barbara Hotz was unavailable for comment despite repeated requests.
A council spokesman said: "We have received a few complaints from parents applying for places at Rosh Pinah Nursery School. We are working closely with the school to support them with their admission arrangements."

An Edgware primary school has been granted retrospective planning permission despite complaints about noise levels.
Barnet Council approved the application for the Tashbar school to remain in its premises in the Kol Yaacov Synagogue in Mowbray Road, where it has operated since 2006.
Council officials had recommended that the committee reject the application, claiming it would result in increased activity, noise and disturbance.
