Kelim (vessels) made of metal or glass (and, according to some opinions, glazed china) are immersed in the Mikvah to prepare them for use in a Jewish home. The Kelim Mikvah has a designated entrance on the east side of the building and is open during daylight hours.

A code is required to gain access to the Kelim Mikvah. Please email at least 24 hours in advance to receive an entry code.
