Canberra opens ritual bath

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/world/article/canberra_opens_ritual_bath_20110114

For the first time, Orthodox Jews in Australia’s capital city have a ritual bath. Mikvah Chaya Mushka Canberra opened its doors in Canberra this week for the small Jewish community of about 600 people. There is no Jewish school or kosher butcher, and Orthodox and Progressive Jews share a community center for prayer services, but local Jews believe a mikvah will attract more Jews to the capital.
