Mikveh

The Brandt Family Mikveh (ritual bath) welcomes members of Temple Israel Center and the broader community to participate in an ancient Jewish tradition in the comfort and warmth of our unique facility. We are the only Conservative synagogue in Westchester with a mikveh.

Immersion in a mikveh is used in a variety of ways to mark spiritual transformations and physical transitions and cycles. It is also used to enhance spiritual readiness for Shabbat and major holidays. Immersion in the mikveh is a requirement for converts to Judaism of all ages.

Immersion in the mikveh is a private experience that can be spiritually uplifting and enriching. We encourage the use of the Brandt Family Mikveh for both traditional and creative purposes: to mark major life cycle events as well as other personal milestones and transitions.

Members of the mikveh committee are available to answer any questions you may have regarding preparation. For more information or to set up an appointment, please contact the mikveh committee (914- 948-2800 ext.116).  All calls and emails are confidential.
