WE ARE LIVE! We are now raising funds to build a state-of-the-art Mikvah right here at Chabad of Regina.
At Chabad of Regina we are dedicated to providing for the spiritual needs of every member of our community. We know that Jewish life cannot exist without the water of a mikvah. Water transforms everything.
Mikvah connects each woman and her family to their innate spirituality, bringing blessings to themselves and those around them. Water is the primary source of all living things. It has the power to purify, restore, and replenish life. Mikvah ensures that G-d is a central part of our relationships and families.
For years, mikvah-observant Jewish women in our community have had to travel hundreds of miles by plane or car to reach the closest mikvah. They set aside many hours – even days – to travel long distances, incurring substantial costs each month. The distance, time, and cost involved prevent dozens of other women from participating in the mitzvah of Mikvah.
For years, we have hoped to build a mikvah that would give local Jewish women access to a mikvah right in our own backyard. We currently have the financing in place to purchase a property. And are on the lookout for the perfect place to use for both Chabad and a Mikvah.
We have launched our exciting Bring Mikvah Home campaign that partners with six other small Jewish communities to raise $1,500,000 to build SEVEN Mikvahs across North America in: Regina, Saskatchewan Kelowna,British Columbia Saskatoon,Saskatchewan Arcata,California Fargo, North Dakota Salem, Oregon Mobile, Alabama
Our local goal is $375,000 CAD ($290,000 USD). With the success of this campaign, we will be able to build our very own Mikvah right here in Regina. This Mikvah will ensure that each woman will be able to observe this essential Mitzvah in a beautiful manner, bringing blessings to herself, her family, and the entire Jewish community.
Can we count on you for your support? We hope you will join our Bring Mikvah Home campaign and change everything for our community through the power of water, through the impact of mikvah.
