When Is The Mikveh Used?

For millennia, women have come to the Mikveh to embrace life's rhythms through monthly immersions. It can be a place of hope for those trying to conceive. Brides and grooms use the Mikveh in preparation for their weddings. The Mikveh is also an essential part of the process of conversion to Judaism. Some choose to use the Mikveh before Shabbat, Holidays, and Rosh Hodesh (the new month). 

Our Mikveh is designed to provide users with a rich and meaningful experience. We use our Mikveh to mark personal transitions and to celebrate milestones, before the imminent birth of a child, following birth, or entering menopause. It is a place to gain strength to endure life's hardships, a place of spiritual cleansing and healing from abuse or trauma. 
"Initially, I was hesitant to go to the Mikveh before my wedding but I went. As I emerged, I had the unexpected feeling of being deeply connected with God and to generations of Jewish women who had come to the Mikveh before me. The most exciting part of my experience was feeling spiritually ready for my wedding." 

"I look forward to coming to the Mikveh. The monthly immersion has enhanced my spiritual identity, awareness of the miracle of my body, and the sanctity of my marriage." 

"I came to the Mikveh after leaving an abusive relationship. I entered the waters feeling empty and lost. As I emerged from the Mikveh, I felt the stirrings of hope and joy for the first time in a long time."
