Opened in May of 2002, the Mikveh at Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El was constructed in accordance with the highest Halachic (Jewish Law) Standards. The Mikveh was created for the Jewish community to enhance the Mitzvah of Mikveh and to encourage its use in the course of Jewish life.
The community Mikveh was built to serve the entire Jewish Community of Greater Philadelphia, regardless of gender, age or affiliation.
What is a Mikveh and What Makes it Special?
A Mikveh is a pool of water designed in accordance with the strict rule and requirements of Jewish law. It must be filled from a naturally flowing source of water such as a stream or rain water. Once collected, the water is heated and cleaned daily.
We are committed to educating our community about the benefits of the Mikveh. Group study and tours may be scheduled. We are available to answer any questions you might have about our Mikveh.
