Please note: Appointment hours vary from week to week as immersion time is dependent on Nightfall.

* On Friday night and Holiday nights, come completely ready to immerse. Do all preparations at home before candle lighting time. If your Mikvah night is on the 2nd night of a holiday), do all preparations before the holiday begins and minimal permissable cleaning on the day of immersion. Please reach out to us if you need guidance or have any questions.

Erev Shabbat and Yom Tov:
