Mei Menachem Mikvah

Renovations of the Mei Menachem Community Mikvah will begin on August 1, 2023. 

Unfortunately, this means that we will have to close for a period of time.  While we are hoping that the mikvah pool can remain accessible during periods of the construction, we are not able to put together a definitive calendar at this time.

Therefore, if you wish to use the mikvah please call (718) 510-6903 to confirm it is open.

We look forward to welcoming you to our reopening celebration.  We will also be scheduling a series of classes and events to educate and celebrate the beauty of the mikvah.

We are still looking for donors at every level.  Please call to discuss sponsorship opportunities.  You can make a donation through Venmo @meimenachem-mikvah or by check to Mei Menachem Community Mikvah, 117 Remsen Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201.


After renovations, the mikvah will open every night for women.

Reserve your appointment here or call (718) 510-6903.

The Mei Menachem Mikvah, in the ground floor of Congregation B’nai Avraham of Brooklyn Heights, has been acclaimed as “breathtakingly beautiful” and “an architectural wonder,” with favorable reviews in The New York Times ("A New Mikvah for Moderns" and "A Ritual Bath, the Mikvah, Makes an Elegant Return"), The Brooklyn Paper ("Yes, that was Oprah on Remsen Street") and the Brooklyn Eagle ("Mikvah 'Bar Mitzvah' in Brooklyn Heights").

This luxurious mikvah is open to all women in the area; synagogue membership is not required. An appointment is necessary.

In the video below, as Oprah describes the role of mikvah in Jewish life, she visits the Mei Menachem Mikvah at Congregation B'nai Araham. (While she refers to the mikvah's role in Hasidic Jewish life, in fact it is an essential component of family life for most observant Jews.
