Park Mikvah Closed for Renovations
The Highland Park mikvah is ready to be transformed into a most beautiful, inviting facility, one which the entire community can be proud of! It is now closed; anticipated reopening before Pesach 2017.
The Young Israel of East Brunswick will be extending their hours throughout the duration of Park Mikvah renovations: Saturday - Thursday: 8:00 - 11:00 PM. Please check their website for more info regarding fees, and for changes in schedule due to inclement weather. YIEB: 193 Dunhams Corner Road, East Brunswick, 732-257-4121 or http://www.yieb.org/mikvah.html
The YIEB mikvah strongly encourages women to prepare at home, due to the expected high volume of patrons.
Pending volunteer availability, Park Mikvah will endeavor to provide transportation to or from the YIEB mikvah, as a free service. Please email Aviva at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer as a driver, or 2 days prior to your visit, to request a ride to the mikvah.
Fundraising campaign to finance the renovations has begun! Dedication opportunities are now available! To make a donation, checks can be mailed to Park Mikvah, 36 Skyview Terrace, Highland Park, NJ 08904 or payment by credit card or PayPal via PayPal.Me/parkmikvah For more info, email email@example.com or www.parkmikvah.org.

Parshas Ki Savo describes that Hashem heard the voices/supplications of the Jewish people. May Hashem hear each of our voices as they ascend from the depths of our hearts to the heights of the shamayim (heavens), and may our efforts make our tefillos more effective and meaningful as well as bring nachas to every one of us and great simcha to our lives as we each do our part to grow closer to Hashem.
