Community Mikvah


The Adas Israel Community Mikvah

Immersion. Connection. Renewal.

A Mikvah is a Jewish ritual bath, requiring “living waters” sourced from rain. Oceans, rivers and other natural bodies of water are all kosher mikvahs. The ritual of immersion is rooted in centuries of Jewish tradition. It is a powerful way to experience an embodied spirituality and can connect a person to God, to their own body, to their ancestors and to the water cycle of our planet.

Our Mikvah is a Jewish sacred space designed to support Jewish ritual life and the personal transitions of individuals and families in the Jewish community.  Traditional reasons for visiting the Mikvah, such as the mitzvah of immersing monthly, getting married, making dishes kosher, converting to Judaism, and preparing spiritually for Shabbat or holidays are welcome here. Equally encouraged are creative reasons to immerse, usually around major life transitions. Examples of this type of visit are varied but include reaching a milestone birthday, marking the end of a period of mourning, becoming a bar or bat mitzvah, or celebrating an anniversary.

Immersion in the mikvah is a highly personal and spiritual experience and we respect the privacy and dignity of each person who uses the mikvah.
