Mikveh

The mikveh is back up and running for women, including prep. COVID safety protocols such as mask-wearing are still in place.

Men may make appointments for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur tevillah by calling the office. Towels are NOT provided.

To learn about the mitzvah of mikveh, please email sarahbergermail@gmail.com . She is always happy to show people around, and is keen to talk to any women who would like to know more.

The Schara Tzedeck Mikveh is located at the rear northeast corner of the synagogue building.  Entry is off the lane, behind the shul.  

Hours of Operation

Women

To book an appointment click here to view the monthly calendar. As a courtesy PLEASE try to give our volunteer attendants at least 24 hours notice when calling. If you are not able to do this, you may not get your first choice of times. As always, women are welcome to request a different attendant from the one listed, but that attendant must make contact with the scheduled attendant, whose appointment scheduling takes priority. If you have any questions please call Sarah Berger at 604-288-2571.

Men

The Mikveh will be available for men to use on alternating Friday mornings between 10 am-12 pm. Each person will be given a 15 minute slot so that the Mikvah can be properly sanitized between each usage. Please enter from the backdoor of the Synagogue (not the Mikvah entrance) and someone will let you in. In keeping with the current mikveh safety policy, showers and toilets are not currently available. If you would like to make an appointment, email or call the shul's office.
