MK Maklev: Reduce Admission Prices to Mikvaot


MK Uri Maklev (United Torah Judaism) sent a letter to the Minister of Religious Affairs Yaakov Margi on Tuesday, demanding that he lead a move to lower the admission prices to mikvaot on Jerusalem, which have recently dramatically increased.

"Many of the attendees at the mikvaot are scholars, yeshiva students and disadvantaged persons, and it cannot be that they will suffer this dramatic price increase,” said MK Maklev. “It cannot be that in these difficult economic times, when the cost of living is skyrocketing, and many families cannot bear the load, there will be such a sharp rise in prices.”
