What is a Mikvah?
A mikvah (or mikveh) is a place used for ritual immersions. A proper mikvah contains a minimum of 40 SE'AH (about 87 gallons) of undrawn water (not filled by bucket or by metal pipes). In general, if there are more than 40 SE'AH, then the remainder of the water may come from any source. Natural lakes, whether or not fed by streams or rivers, qualify. However, these waters may be inaccessible or dangerous and have problems of inclement weather and lack of privacy. Jewish life therefore requires the construction of mikvahs and this has been done in every age and circumstance. Indoor mikvahs, such as the mikvah at the Chabad Lubavitch Center, may thus be used if they meet stringent halachic standards.

Our mikvah is beautiful and aesthetic. It is located at Chabad Jewish Community Center.

The mikvah is available for women most evenings. Reservations by appointment only. Please call for an appointment at least 48 hours in advance when possible. The preparation room is fully equipped to make your visit a pleasurable one. The private number to make reservations is (845) 638-9398
