Mikvah Not Possible Without Architect

January 16, 2014

I am glad that you mentioned when the original mikvah was built at Beth El Congregation, acknowledging the work of Rabbi Mark Loeb and those who contributed the money for building the original facility (“Magic Water,” Dec. 20).

I would like to add that the mikvah would not have been there were it not for an architect to design it. I want to give credit to my father, Benjamin Brotman, who not only designed the original mikvah, but also designed other parts of Beth El.

No redesign or building can get started without someone designing it.
