The Mikvah Campaign

After a sewer back up damaged and toxified the music studio in Aliya’s basement during Tishrei, we decided instead of just detoxing and rebuilding, we would do a deeper level of purification. We will build the first “One of a kind “One at a Time” Aliya Men’s Mikvah”.

The idea quickly gained popularity and momentum amongst the guys. We flew in Rabbi Gershon Grossbaum, an internationally renowned mikvah expert, from Minnesota to inspect the location and give a class for Aliya, explaining the intricacies and importance of building a kosher mikva. Rabbi Grossbaum toured the basement with the guys, taking measurements and laying out a design for how to build the mikvah in the most practical and beautiful way.

Since the word got out the Aliya inbox has been flooded with beautiful messages from young people inspired by the new concept. Little did we realize how many young people suffering from child sexual abuse and other forms of severe trauma, not even living religious lifestyles, were elated to hear about this project and excited to use it. This will indeed be one of a kind!

One mother called in tears when she saw her son’s reaction to our mikva idea. She said her son's face lit up and said look, Mom, there will be a mikva that will help abuse victims gain purity in a dignified way.

The new mikvah will not be an ordinary community mikvah. This mikvah will be designed exclusively for young men who would never go to the mikvah otherwise. It will be a private beautiful room with a shower sauna and changing room for one person. Appointments will be made using a reservation app.

Construction is well underway we are calling on you to partner with Aliya on this transformation project that will enhance the sanctity and purity of our young generation!

This campaign is also overlapping with Aliya’s annual matching fundraising campaign and our winter Ski Shabbaton campaign coming up January 29-31.

May this new Aliya mikvah initiative usher in the complete Geulah and help our young community purify themselves and be able to bring up korbanos imminently in the Third Bais Hamikdash.
