MIKVEH PUZ­ZLE

The Jewish Chronicle - - Comment & Analysis -

I was amazed to read Barry Landy’s let­ter ( Let­ters, Oc­to­ber 3) which states that the “trustees of the Cam­bridge Com­mu­nity Mikveh Char­i­ta­ble Trust (CCMC) have re­peat­edly voted against giv­ing funds to the Gilin­skys”.

I can say with ab­so­lute con­fi­dence that nei­ther I nor my hus­band have per­son­ally made any ap­pli­ca­tion for funds for a mikveh in Cam­bridge. And why would Mr Landy think such an ap­pli­ca­tion has been “voted against” by the CCMC trustees? Has one or more of the CCMC trus­tee been leak­ing (al­beit, not very ac­cu­rate) min­utes and vot­ing records of the trust to Mr Landy?

I do not un­der­stand Mr Landy’s in­volve­ment in this mat­ter, nor his at­tempts to em­broil the Cam­bridge Tra­di­tional Jewish Con­gre­ga­tion in an in­ter­nal dis­agree­ment be­tween trustees about the al­lo­ca­tion of pub­lic funds for the ben­e­fit of mar­ried Jewish women in Cam­bridge.

Milton Road is the only site in Cam­bridge with plan­ning per­mis­sion, three park­ing places on its fore­court, plenty of side-road park­ing, and about to re­ceive its own sep­a­rate Land Reg­istry mort­gage-free ti­tle. Ofra Gilin­sky Perse Way, Cam­bridge
