Corona and the Mikvaot
 
The Ministry of Religious Services and the local Religious Councils are currently working in full cooperation and following the guidelines of the Ministry of Health in the field of women's mikvahs in order to enable regular service as much as possible.
We follow the instructions that are implemented for Mikvahs  in the  areas of water
disinfection, hygiene and cleanliness guidelines for the surfaces of the mikvah room and
space and in the preparation rooms.

Based on the guidelines of the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Religious Services, we have concentrated the focus of the guidelines for you whose objectives are to enable regular service in the mikvah, alongside reducing and limiting  gathering in the public space. All this is a responsibility.

It should be noted that  in a meeting with the Ministry of Health it was  made it clear that the virus does not pass through treated water, that is as long as the water is being  treated according to the instructions and regulations, from the point of view of hygiene , disinfection with chlorine and all that is required  according to the regulations. If that is the case there should not be a problem, and in light of this it will be made clear  that any prevention of using the mikvah in a regular way, women should not be concerned about ,  as long as the mikvah is taken care of in accordance with the disinfection instructions detailed in the Health Ministry regulations


Attached a short guide to the person that immerses. it is recommended to post it in the mikvahs and to publicize it for the benefit of the immersing women.

Best regards,
Deborah Eiferman
Director of the Department of Religious Buildings
