Brooklyn is home to hundreds of thousands of Eastern European immigrants whose Jewish identities were unspeakably damaged by the Holocaust and the ruthless communist regime. For over 20 years, Chabad of Kensington has been caring for the spiritual and material needs of this community among the greater Brooklyn community.
We place special emphasis on the observance of Taharas Hamishpacha to ensure Jewish continuity in purity. Yet, as most Mikvaos in Brooklyn were built in an era when little consideration was given to comfort or discretion, it’s no surprise that many modern-day women find the experience unpleasant.
Too often their first visit is also their last. It is time to build a facility that is both beautiful to lifelong Shomrei Torah and enticing to the not-yet observant. The Ocean Parkway Mikvah will offer that magnificent, spalike experience that reflects the beauty and holiness of this Mitzvah and will attract women who might otherwise hesitate to observe it.
We have earned the support of Gedolei Hatorah, Askanim and our own community to build this magnificent Mikvah Taharah as part of a new 13,000 sq. ft. center of Torah living on Ocean Parkway & 18th Avenue. We invite you to partner with us to support generations of Jewish families and as an infinite Zechus for your own family.
