By Jay Grenby, June 24, 2010

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.
