Until today, anyone who wanted to build a Mikveh, had to dig a hole in the ground, then pour concrete, seal it and cover the walls with ceramic tiles. The cost of building such a Mikveh is a very steep expense – which decreases the possibility of building many more . In addition, water heating expenses are very high, as a large part of energy escapes by “heating the earth.”
One major problem – pertaining to the conventional Mikveh – is carrying out frequent inspections to make sure that there is no water seepage into the ground – which immediately makes the Mikveh non-kosher. To locate and repair such leakage, usually takes a rather long time!
Furthermore, the long wait to alleviate the problem, placed a burden on the community, some of whom travel quite far for such a ritual.
The solution is: Mikveh Malchut!
Mikveh Malchut answers all above mentioned issues, in addition to many more.
Our Mikveh is placed on a cement or ceramic surface (not on sand or earth).
The placement of the Mikveh is done by a rabbinical expert, specializing in Mikvehs, as he needs to make sure that rainwater will enter the Mikveh in addition to supervising that the installation follows the halakhic rules. The Mikveh contains two rainwater compartments.
We have many quite a few Mikveh models:
* A Mikveh with one “Ozar” & one immersion area
* A Mikveh with two “Ozrot” & one immersion area
* A Mikveh with three “Ozrot” & one immersion area
* A “Chabad” Mikveh with a “בור תחתון”
