Jewish ritual bath in West Africa

Online news site Forward reports on the development of West Africa’s first Jewish ritual bath, which is called a 'mikveh', as part of a collaboration between locally-based Israeli owned security company EMI Systems Limited and a Chabad emissary.This mikveh, which serves as an important part of Jewish religious practice, is a facility for women, who use it to cleanse themselves before marriage and after menstruation. Plans are also in place to build another mikveh for men and a Jewish community centre.
