seeking to live in accordance with this law and tradition.

The Hebrew word Mikveh means a gathering of water. At first glance, a Mikveh looks like a small swimming pool. However, if you look closely you will see a small hole, two or three inches in diameter, just below the waterline of the pool.
While this hole may appear insignificant, it gives the pool status as a Mikveh.
Just opposite the small hole you will notice a removable cover, over a pit. This pit is a small pool by itself, and is filled with natural rainwater.
The Honorable Rabbi Grossbaum instructed and supervised the building process to ensure our facility met the many conditions to having a kosher Mikveh; most importantly, that the Mikveh must consist of approximately 200 gallons of water.
