About Our Mikvah
The rabbis of the Capital District united to create a community Mikvah project in 1993, following the closing of the Elm St. mikvah in downtown Albany. The Jewish Federation of Northeastern New York helped facilitate the project while the Albany Jewish Community Center graciously provided land on their own property. The project was spear-headed by Rabbi Dr. Moshe Bomzer, who saw the project from inception to completion. Rabbi Ben Kean of Congregation Beth Abraham-Jacob currently serves as the Rav HaMachshir. Rabbi Yitzchok Trieger serves as the supervising Rav.
In addition to the women who use it monthly for Taharat Hamishpacha (family purity), B’nos Israel Mikvah opens its doors to brides and tour groups. We also serve those who are converting to Judaism, as well as travelers.
We have two immersion Mikvaot: Bor Al Gabei Bor (bor geshomim under immersion pool) and Side By Side (bor geshomim on side of immersion pool). We also have a Keilim Mikvah (utensil), accessible at the side of the building without appointment.
