In 1993, following the closing of the Mikvah on Elm street, Albany Community Rabbis joined together to support a united Capital District Mikvah project. The Jewish Federation of Northeastern New York helped facilitate the project while the Albany Jewish Community Center graciously provided land for the Mikvah. This project was spear-headed by Rabbi Dr. Moshe Bomzer who saw the project from inception to completion. Rabbi Roy Feldman of Beth Abraham-Jacob currently serves as the Rav HaMachshir and 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, and accommodate travelers from afar, such as Montreal, Massachusetts, and Vermont. We have two immersion Mikvot, Bor Al Gabai Bor (bor Geshomim Under Immersion Pool) and the other one is Side By Side (bor Geshomim On Side Of Immersion Pool), and one keilim (utensil) Mikvah.
