2022 Mikvah Slate

Dear Friends,

We are reaching out to you to ask you to partner with the West Orange Mikvah on an annual basis.

Through the past couple of challenging years, the West Orange Mikvah has worked hard to maintain the sanctity of the mitzvah of taharat hamishpacha while also keeping the community safe and healthy during a global pandemic. Our mikvah remained open when most communal institutions were closed in March 2020.

This fall, our mikvah welcomed Leora Sagorsky as our new attendant. Leora and her husband Mendy moved into the apartment located above the mikvah and the apartment required upgrades to ready the space for the Sagorskys.

Shul membership does not support the mikvah and we rely on community members to partner with us to maintain our premises. We encourage every household in West Orange--whether or not any of its family members are mikvah users--to support the West Orange Mikvah so that we can continue to serve women and men in our community.

We have simplified our membership structure for 2022, removing the co-pay membership option. Though donations of any amount are welcome, we encourage contributions at the following levels:

$180 Individual Membership

$500 Donor's Circle
(includes family membership)

$1000 Silver Donor's Circle
(includes family membership)

$1800 Platinum Donor's Circle
(includes family membership)

If you wish to pay by check, please make the check out to the Essex County Ritualarium and mail it c/o Silverman, 27 Greenwood Ave, West Orange, NJ 07052.

Membership will apply through December 31, 2022.

If you would like to become a sustaining member, whose membership is renewed each year, please email membership@westorangemikvah.org.

We are also aiming to eliminate co-pay payments at the mikvah, by encouraging sponsorship of each month of the Jewish calendar. Other sponsorship and naming opportunities are available as well. If you are interested in participating in this program or are interested in dedication opportunities, please email sponsorship@westorangemikvah.org.

Thank you for your continued support.
