Mikvah Information 

 

About:

Baron Hirsch maintains a full service mikvah for use by its members and guests under the halachic supervision of Rabbi Binyamin Lehrfield. For use of the mikvah outside the parameters outlined below, please contact the Rabbi, his wife Orit Lehrfield, or our Yoetzet Halacha to confidentially discuss.

Women's Mikvah appointments are facilitated by a dedicated group of volunteers. Volunteer attendants are trained in halachot of tevila as well as in the importance of maintaining privacy and modesty. The volunteer balanit (attendant) is posted weekly on the Facebook group, serving Sunday to Saturday night week shifts. In extenuating circumstances, such as family relation to the attendant, a tovelet (with sufficient advance notice) may contact the lead balanit to arrange an alternate. We extend a huge thank you to our volunteers for dedicating their time and efforts to allow our community to fulfill this mitzvah. 

Making Appointments:

Women’s Mikvah appointments are made after nightfall (Tzeis HaKochavim) and should be coordinated at least 48 hours in advance. To make an appointment, call or text the mikvah at 901-504-1063. Please leave a detailed message, including the night that you need an appointment, and the attendant will return your call. Your message will be sent to the attendant via email. Please allow time for the attendant to respond, as many of our volunteers are working, and may respond later in the day. 

General Information:

  • Payment of $18 for Mikvah use should be made at the time of appointment. Credit cards are accepted. All payments and transactions are in the private Mikvah account, only seen by the Chairwoman of the Mikvah committee.

  • To contact Yoetzet Halacha Atara Segal, please email atara@baronhirsch.org. She will respond via email or phone call. If urgent, please title email as such.
