Keylim Mikvah Usage


We are pleased to announce that with the guidance of medical professionals and the RCBC, the Teaneck Keylim Mikvah is open for self service, by APPOINTMENT ONLY, for the hours of 8:00-2:00 Monday through Thursday and 8:00-5:30 on Friday. 



A new system will be in place as follows: 



1.     In order to comply with the requirements of social distancing, we have hired a staff person to tovel your keylim for you while you wait.  He will be the only person allowed in the keylim mikvah during the designated hours.


2.     Usage is by appointment only. To make an appointment please click here.


3.     Appointments will be in 10 minute slots.  Should you have too many items for 10 minutes, please make multiple appointments on separate days or email the mikvah at teaneckmikvah@gmail.com.  Special arrangements can be made for newly married or engaged couples.


4.     You must wear a mask and gloves when bringing your items to the mikvah.


5.     Please examine the items and do all pre tevilah preparation (unwrapping, removing labels, etc.,.) at home.  The mikvah staff will not unwrap or remove labels.


6.     Please be respectful of other patrons and wait in your car until it is your time slot. 


7.     Once it is your time slot, you will exit your car with your keylim and place them on the table outside of the mikvah.  The staff member will return the items to this same table after they are tovelled.


8.     Please be considerate of others and do not tovel things during this phase that are not for immediate use (ie., things that are needed only for next Pesach) as we would like to keep the time slots for items that can be used now.


9.     The Mikvah will not be responsible for valuable, delicate or breakable items.   If an item breaks, we sincerely apologize but we will not cover any costs.  Please use your best judgement in determining whether you wish someone else to tovel your item.


10. Please click here for a list of items that require tevilat keylim.
