At the 2nd annual gathering of the Horowitz dynasty of Chassidic Rabbis on April 29th 2006 in the Main Synagogue in Mikulov,  Mr. David Reichman of Great Britain pledged a deposit of 1,000,000. CZK to cover the initial costs of investing in the construction of a new Mikvah and Visitor's Center in the Mikulov Jewish Center


At a meeting in Town Hall in May 2006, this pledge of support was presented in person to the Mayor who gave his support for the project and referred Mr. Reichman and Mr. Fleischman to the Jewish Community of Brno who are the present title holders of the Jewish properties in Moravia.

The Jewish Cemetery in Mikulov is closed to Jewish prayer, but open for business on Saturdays and even on Rosh HaShannah.


The Mikulov Synagogue has been closed to everybody since 2019

In June 2006 the Jewish Community of Brno was presented with this generous offer to restore the Ceremonial Hall in the Jewish Cemetery as an educational center and construct a Mikvah for the spiritual and religious needs of our many visitors, but for unknown reasons the Brno community's leadership chose to ignore this donation, choosing instead to collect rents on the building to a well known manufacturer of ceramics. A few years later when the Brno Community evicted him for unknown reasons and failed to inform us of this and that the cemetery building's administration was quietly transferred to an organisation calling itself "Society of Friends of Jewish Culture in Mikulov" and their U.S. IRS registered for tax deductible donations from U.S. citizens calling itself "The Jewish Preservation Initiative". Both entities have ignored our countless inquiries including pledges of support and cooperation, keeping the gates locked to Jewish prayers on multiple occasions and not returning phone calls.
Several attempts have been made through the years to find a solution with leaders of the Jewish Community of Brno, but have regrettably failed thus far.
