Mamakating board approves mikvah that would serve Hasidic community 

The Mamakating Planning Board Tuesday night approved one of the town’s most controversial projects.

The board approved the mikvah – a ritual bath for Jews – on 51 Winterton Road that would serve Shalom Lamm’s 396-home Hasidic community and others in Bloomingburg.

The work on the mikvah had been halted in January when the Mamakating issued a stop-work order because construction was being done without necessary permits. Also on the agenda was the proposed private girls’ school that would serve the development. No action was taken on Tuesday.
