Kelim Mikvah

Kelim Mikvah is re-opening!

We are excited to announce the reopening of the Kelim Mikvah after the closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  

While the spread of the virus has diminished in our area, we must remain vigilant and reduce the likelihood of transmitting the virus within our community.  Therefore, the following procedure has been developed.  We ask you for cooperation and patience.  If the procedure is not adhered to, we will be forced to close the Kelim Mikvah again.

Please note that the water in the Kelim Mikvah is brominated / chlorinated and does not present a health hazard.  An attendant will be conducting the actual immersion for you. No one other than the attendant will actually be entering the Mikvah.

An appointment is required for use of this Mikvah. Please use the following link to schedule your appointment. The attendant will be wearing a mask and gloves.

Kelim Mikvah Sign-Up
 


Due to our extended closure, we know that there is a backup of items requiring immersion. In order to accommodate as many people as possible, initially appointments will be limited to 10 minutes per person at this time. We ask you to prioritize your items to bring the essential ones first. We hope to expand the allotted time as soon as possible.

We will be reviewing our video monitors on a regular basis to ensure compliance with these regulations. If they are not followed, we will be forced to close the Kelim Mikvah.

IN PREPARATION FOR YOUR VISIT TO THE KELIM MIKVAH
● Kindly prepare all vessels at home by removing any stickers or interpositions.
● All items must be removed from their packaging prior to your arrival at the Mikvah. In other words, everything should be ready for immersion in the Kelim Mikvah.
● Schedule your appointment.

AT THE KELIM MIKVAH
● All people must wear masks.
● A table will be set up outside the Kelim Mikvah for you to place your items. Please wait in an area away fom the Mikvah to allow the prior person to complete their immersion before approaching the table with your items.
● The attendant will conduct the immersion for you. He will be your Shaleach (Messenger) acting on your behalf and will say the Baracha.
● If you have a large number of items, please schedule an additional appointment.

GENERAL MEASURES
●Do not come to the Kelim Mikvah if you or anyone in your household are exhibiting any symptoms of the Covid-19 virus.
● Please bring your own gloves.

The Mikvah has incurred considerable additional cleaning and disinfection expenses during the current Covid-19 crisis.  Your generous donation to support Mikvah Ohel Leah would be most appreciated.

We would like to thank Nachi Epstein for agreeing to be the Kelim Mikvah attendant!

With your careful adherence to these procedures we will be able to keep open the Kelim Mikvah until further notice.

Thank you for your support of Mikvah Ohel Leah
