Our Mikvah Project
Our Plan, Our Dream
The Mikvah is commonly known as the spa for the soul. And it literally is, because when you fulfill this beautiful mitzvah, it is as the holy waters of the mikvah cleanses your soul, and everything becomes new. A new path, a new journey closer and hand in hand with Gd.
It is important to note the importance of having a mikvah in a community. The community would go as far as selling the building in order to keep their communities mikvah running smoothly.
So, what is a mikvah? A mikvah is a ritual pool that is constructed according to the Jewish Law. The immersion in the mikvah is as if the soul has a powerful transformational experience, elevating the soul to a closeness with HaShem that there was not there before.
The main use of the mikvah is the observance of Jewish ¨Family Purity¨ laws. When a woman a woman´s menstrual cycle comes to an end, a woman immerses in the mikvah, so that she can be spiritually refreshed, in result, her relationship with her husband is boosted and in consequence the spiritual health of her family improves. A mikvah is also used for neshamot who wish to convert to Judaism.
Many use the performance of this beautiful mitzvah as a private one on one moment with Gd.
So, our current primary focus as a community is to fulfill the dream of building our community mikvah so that we can take one step closer to HaShem. And therefore, our members having the happiness in their hearts when they are about to fulfill such an important mitzvah.
