Dear Mikvah Users,

 

After thoughtful consideration, we have decided to reopen our Men’s Mikvah for the use of our members.

 

We have taken into account what is being done in other Jewish communities, the advice of our local board of Rabbis, and the current CDC guidelines to come up with the following protocols to keep our facility safe for use.

 

Our goal is to keep our Mikvah open and as safe as possible for all users and staff.​

 

Women's Mikvah Protocols:

  • All women are to do their full preparations at home and come to the Mikvah ready to immerse (like a Friday night appointment)

 

  • There will be no use of baths, showers, or any implements at the Mikvah (brushes, nail clippers etc...)

 

  • For the safety of our dedicated Shomerets, we are asking that you either bring your own towel, or when not feasible to take your used linens straight to the washing machine on your way out.

 

  • We continue to sanitize the entire facility and water daily to the highest of standards.
     

  • We will have disinfecting wipes in each prep room and by the front door for client use as needed.

 

  • We ask that if you or anyone in your family is showing any symptoms of illness that you postpone your appointment. We will be extra accommodating for anyone who needs to reschedule. If you are unsure, please call one of our local rabbis or the number below.
     

  • If you are at all immunocompromised, please let your scheduler know that so we can take extra precautions.

Men's Mikvah Protocols:

  • The facility will be sanitized before and after Friday use, as well as several other days each week. 

  • The water will be chlorinated to the recommended levels.

  • We suggest that you wash your hands with soap upon entry. 

  • We request that you bring your own towel.

  • Members who would like to leave personal items at the Mikvah may only do so in a locker and not in common spaces.

  • Sanitizing wipes will be placed by the key pad, sink, and handrail so you can clean before and after use. 

  • We recommend that you keep good social distancing practices at the Mikvah and wait patiently for other users to exit before entry.

  • If you or anyone in your household has any symptoms of illness, please postpone using the Mikvah. 

  • All requests for out of town or non-member use must go through Paul Zwelling. Allowing someone else to enter on your code is strictly prohibited and will result in prolonged suspension of use. 

 

We thank you for your understanding, and pray that with your cooperation and the help of the Almighty, that this period of time will pass and we will be able to return to our regular operations and the high standards of service we are accustomed to providing for our community.

If you have any questions please feel free to call us.
