Maalos Kedoshim Mikvah

The Maalos Kedoshim Mikvah is embarking on an ambitious crowdfunding campaign to secure the future of the Mikvah. During the campaign, every pound pledged will be matched by a number of new generous donors; increasing the impact each donation will have towards the cause.

In 2010, when the newly formed mikvah committee met with local Rabbonim and askonim from across the spectrum, their advice was clear: we had a duty to the wider community to build the largest Mikvah possible to the highest standards, to accommodate the rapid growth of the local kehillah and reduce the very long waiting times.

The costs of the Mikvah’s construction was close to £2.5m. Although, at the time, crowd-funding had not yet become common, the local community extended themselves to ensure that the construction could go ahead. People realised that in an area like North West London, there is no reason that the standards of our community infrastructure should not reflect the means of the community and that a Mikvah is the foundation stone of any community. Despite the generosity of the community, there remained a shortfall of close to £1 million.

Without doubt there are far more people using a Mikvah as a direct result of this project. The ripple effect that this will have on future Jewish generations cannot be measured in words.

The mikvah is a masterpiece: halachically, technologically and aesthetically. Its’ existence is a source of great pride to our Kehilla. There is likely not a single family in the area that does not benefit in some way from our Mikvah, whether one uses it or not. Waiting times at other mikvaos have been almost entirely eradicated and the level of finish has pushed the boundaries.

The current economic climate, predominantly the enormous increase in utility costs and the rise in interest rates, has placed significant increased pressure on the running of the mikvah and now is the time to secure its future. So, this campaign is about reaching out to the kehilla to ensure that the vital infrastructure can survive and continue serving each and every person in some way. A mikvah is one of those things often taken for granted, the askonim (charged with running the Mikvah every day of the year) would love to see everyone doing their bit literally to ensure the continuity of the mikvah.
