Nahariya is a city in the Western Galilee region that is home to over 60,0000 residents. The city has a mixed population of religious, traditional and secular residents.
The local mikvah, known as Mikvah Ein Sarah, has been in around for many years and is used by the Ein Sara residents, as well as women from neighboring areas.
To date, the mikvah is run-down and neglected. This is very offensive to many women and prevents them from keeping the mitzvah of taharah. Unfortunately, the other mikvahs in the city are also dilapidated, leaving the women with no real choice of a proper facility.
Merkaz L’Taharat Ha’Mishpacha has undertaken the complete makeover of Mikvah Ein Sarah, which will be renovated as an ultra-modern state-of-the-art facility. This will provide a real-time response to the needs of the neighborhood. Additionally, as is well documented, a beautiful mikvah invites the residents to partake in the mitzvah of taharah.
Much thought was invested in the design of two deluxe bridal suites that are to be part of these premises. The bridal experience is particularly important, as a positive first-time experience leads many women to implement this mitzvah into their married lives.
Statistically speaking, a luxurious mikvah that provides women with a pampering experience doubles and even triples the nightly usage by the women of the community. The positive first-time bridal interaction with the mikvah serves as an impetus to continue with this vital mitzvah.
The renovated mikvah will have five beautiful preparation rooms, two Boros tevilah, a comfortable lobby and make-up room.
