I stand with a small crowd inside a beautiful new mikvah (Jewish ritual bath). It looks like the interior of a mosque: tall ceilings with blue and white tiles, Hebrew calligraphy wraps around the upper parts of the walls, and floral patterns shine brightly off of the tile relief. The angles of the space appear to be shaped like a Star of David (also the Hindu symbol of the heart chakra). Eddie B. stands before us, singing a beautiful Hebrew prayer. He appears to be very old, as indicated by a droopy left lower lip. But, excited while singing the prayer, he moves lightly as his words echo through the lofted heights.
