Description

A Mikvah is a pool used for ritual immersion. Jewish law mandates that women immerse themselves in the Mikvah after menstruation, before marriage, and after childbirth. Immersion in the Mikvah is also required for conversion to Judaism for both men and women. Mikvahs are strictly separated by gender. This mikvah is the women's mikvah of St. Louis Park. The Mikvah Ritualarium of Minneapolis, located behind the Kenessesth Israel Synagogue in St. Louis Park, is reserved solely for the use of males.
