The building of a Mikvah takes precedence even from a synagogue, since it’s the base of the Jewish family and it represents the ultimate celebration of life and of the power given by G-d, exclusively to women, to create life
Our dream is to build a spa for the body as well as for the soul, where immersing in the spiritually cleansing waters of the Mikvah, the woman will be able to nourish, nurture, experience and renew her sense of intimacy. Additionally a separate mikvah for men, which will be the first in Rome.
The local Jewish Community in the area of Piazza Bologna and the neighboring areas is experiencing an unprecedented resurgence of interest for spiritual meaning and purpose. The closest Mikvah is walk of forty-five minutes to an hour and a half.
Chabad will help fund the project that will cost €650,000 including the purchase of the propriety, your donation will go entirely towards the construction of the Mikvah.
In March 2014 a propriety was found and secured with a down payment, Chabad set a goal to help with $140,000.
We hope to strengthen our community by enabling women to become more spiritually empowered and fulfilled. Marriages and families will be nourished and enhanced, ultimately leading to a stronger, healthier Jewish community.
