Welcome to our Mikvah project
Our goal is to spiritually enrich our Jewish community by building a state-of-the-art mikvah where every Jewish woman will feel welcome, comfortable and encouraged to attend. We welcome you to join us in establishing our new mikvah facility which will be open and inviting to all members of our local Jewish community.
 
Through this project, we endeavor to revive an awareness of the extraordinary importance of the mikvah. Our hope is to enable women to become more spiritually empowered and fulfilled. Marriages and families will be nourished and enhanced through this mitzvah. We will also be including a separate men's mikvah for men to have the mikvah experience.
 
The total cost of the project is estimated at $400,000. We have purchased the property at 253 Lucas Ave, across the street from Agudas Achim to serve as the mikvah location. We are going through a stage of architectural design, planning and permits. We will then begin the building phase and with a groundbreaking ceremony.
 
We are thankful to the A-lmighty for giving us the opportunity to take part in this momentous project that will impact our Jewish community just as it has throughout the generations for thousands of years. We welcome you to join us in this great mitzvah.
Mikvah Ma'ayan Chai
Named in Memory of Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneerson.
 
Ma'ayan Chai means a "Living Well." We gave it this name because a mikvah serves as a living well of blessing to Jewish life.
 
Ma'ayan = Well
Chai = Life (Same as Chaya, from the Rebbetzin's name.)
