About the project


When designing and constructing the Belz mikvah, here are some key considerations:

  1. Consultation: Work closely with the Belz community, religious leaders, and mikvah experts to understand their specific requirements and customs. They can provide guidance on layout, materials, and other aspects of the mikvah design.

  2. Layout and rooms: Design the mikvah with separate immersion pools or rooms for women, ensuring privacy and modesty. Consider designing spaces for preparation, dressing, and relaxation before and after immersion.

  3. Water source: Ensure a reliable and clean water source for the mikvah. It should meet specific standards for purity and be regularly tested to ensure compliance.

  4. Materials: Use appropriate materials in accordance with religious guidelines. For example, the immersion pools are often constructed with materials such as stone or tiles that are smooth, non-absorbent, and easy to clean.

  5. Lighting and ambiance: Create a serene and tranquil atmosphere within the mikvah. Soft lighting, natural elements, and calming aesthetics contribute to a spiritually uplifting experience.

  6. Accessibility: Consider the needs of individuals with disabilities and ensure that the mikvah is accessible to all. This includes provisions for wheelchair access, handrails, and appropriate facilities.

  7. Water heating and filtration systems: Install reliable and efficient water heating and filtration systems to maintain the desired water temperature and purity. Regular maintenance and upkeep of these systems are essential.

  8. Privacy and security: Design the mikvah to ensure the privacy and security of those using the facility. Adequate partitions, locks, and surveillance systems, if deemed necessary, can be incorporated.

  9. Ventilation and air quality: Ensure proper ventilation to maintain a fresh and comfortable environment within the mikvah, with appropriate humidity control and air circulation systems.

  10. Adherence to regulations: Comply with local building codes, health regulations, and safety standards throughout the construction process to ensure the mikvah meets all necessary legal requirements.

It’s worth noting that the Belz community may have specific customs and traditions that influence the design and construction of their mikvaot. Therefore, it is advisable to consult with experts and religious authorities within the Belz community for guidance throughout the design and construction process.
