Women's Mikvah

Since the mid 1990’s our community has been blessed to have beautiful mikvahs adjacent to the shul complex (accessible from Whipple St.). Our mikvahs are constructed according to the highest halachic standards, following the bor al gabbai bor design, under the direction of Rabbi Baruch Hertz.

Please scroll down for important mikvah updates & to make your online appointment.

**IMPORTANT Updates:**

The Bnei Ruven women’s mikvah is now closed except for Friday night appointments and Yom Tov evenings (with another small community mikvah available for our use in the interim ~ please see details below).  This is due to B"H construction to expand and build a new shul/school campus for Bnei Ruven and the Lubavitch Girls High School. 
Please note that entrance to the Bnei Ruven mikvah (for Friday & Yom Tov appointments) is only via the men's mikvah entrance on N. Whipple St. via the code posted by the door.  Scroll down for our online form to make appointments.  

Although the construction impacts use of the women's mikvah, we have provided other options (see below) and are utilizing this time to renovate and modernize the current Bnei Ruven Mikvah.

Chabad chassidim are very particular about using a bor al gabei bo
r mikvah wherever possible for its halachic advantages. (Click on this link to read more about it.)  A small bor al gabei bor mikvah has been recently completed under the supervision of Rabbi Hertz.  We are thankful that this beautiful mikvah at 2649 W. Jarlath St. is available exclusively for our community during the interim time for 30 minute shower appointments made via the form below (scroll down to make your appointment).
