Abstract Much like during Mikveh Israel's formative years, by the mid 19th century a new building was needed to replace an outdated space. Unlike previous years in which the congreation appealed to the community for donations (see the subscription list earlier in this exhibit), the Congregation decided to employ a lottery system to raise funds, and their plan was even sanctioned by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
