Mikvah Project

The RCE has a unique flag project of constructing and renovating European Mehadrin Mikvahs in remote cities and places throughout the continent.

The RCE has a special Mikvah department, striving to provide all the tools needed to build a Mehadrin mikveh. The assistance begins from professional consultation and guidance during the planning and construction of the mikveh, continuing with solving halachic and technical problems during the process, and to financial assistance in construction.

The Mikvah Division, lead by Rabbi Yisrael Ya’akov Lichtenstein, is part of the RCE’s board of directors, headed by RCE”S Deputy Director General  Rabbi Yosef Bainhaker, visits the various communities throughout Europe every year to personally inspect the status of the mikvahs at each site from the ‘pit’ in the mikvah as well as the filling pits, the way the water runs and the rainwater, Each inspection defines the needs of the specific community as to what is in order and what needs to be improved.
