    The shul in Troy was recently declared a landmark. It was built in 1909. In the early years Rabbi Lasker gave a passionate speech about the importance of having a mikve. Shortly afterwards, one was built.

    A very intriguing issue – who was Rabbi Lasker’s grandfather …

    Where is or was the closest Mikvah in or around Troy? I once read that the Malacha’s son had one in Albany, did that cover Troy as well.
