PLEASE DO ALL OF YOUR PREPARATIONS AT HOME BEFORE YOU ARRIVE.
Beginning Tuesday March 17 the keilim mikvah will be open from 9am-2pm. We will accommodate community members ONE AT A TIME. Please call a head if possible and be prepared to wait if necessary.
The West Side Mikvah prioritizes community members at this time and we request that if you live closer to another mikvah, please use it.
For thousands of years, Jewish women have cherished the mitzvah of Mikvah as an opportunity to infuse their lives and their homes with spirituality and holiness. According to tradition, water symbolizes purity, life and the abundance of G-d’s blessings. Participation in the mitzvah of Mikvah is a bond between each Jewish woman and the generations who have preceded her, between husband and wife, and between each of us and G-d. The mitzvah of Mikvah affords us an opportunity for introspection and renewal.
The Mikvah attendant is here to help you fulfill this mitzvah in the best possible way. If you would like her assistance please request it. If there is anything we can do to help make your Mikvah experience more fulfilling, please do not hesitate to ask.
