Dear Friends,

We hope this letter finds you safe and healthy, as we enter the Yamim Noraim.

The West Orange Mikvah plays a unique role in our community. Just as we daven during the Yamim Noraim as one large community, so too does the Mikvah unite us as one large community dedicated to maintaining the sanctity of taharat mishpacha, the laws of family purity. Our mikvah is also a place where people come for rebirth, to begin their life anew by converting to Judaism.

The West Orange Mikvah is not affiliated with any shul in the community. This means we must fundraise on our own. We are so grateful to community members who have donated to our mikvah this year. Our 2022 fundraising goal is $65,000, and to date we have raised $29,000 towards our goal. This is short of the money we need to operate the mikvah, especially as the costs of supplies and energy continue to rise.

Every year we run a winter membership drive. Thanks to our 2022 membership drive, about 20% of community residents have donated to the mikvah this year. The mikvah cannot be sustained with the support of only 20% of the community.

We need everyone in the community to support this vital resource. Please consider giving a minimum of $100, $180, $360, $540 or $1,000 towards membership or our Rosh Hashanah Campaign.
