Oprah visits mikvah for new show

(JTA) — Oprah Winfrey visited Chasidic Jews and a mikvah in Brooklyn for a new television series.

Winfrey on Wednesday visited the neighborhoods of Borough Park and Brooklyn Heights, and met with two Chasidic families, including one in Crown Heights, as part of a new series called "Oprah’s Next Chapter," which is set to premiere in January on her OWN network.

The television star also toured a Chabad-Lubavitch mikvah in Brooklyn Heights but did not immerse in the Jewish ritual bath.
