Capital Campaign

More than four years ago, a group of community leaders came together to plan a new, stand-alone, beautiful mikvah to meet the needs of the growing Jewish community in the Lower Merion area.  The then existing community mikvah was over 40 years old and too small to handle communities needs. 

 

The capital campaign has been a four-year community-wide endeavor to raise $4 Million for the construction of this new facility.  Over 250 families have contributed a minimum of $1800 to make this dream a reality and to meet the needs of our community for generations to come.  We still have $500,000 to raise to ensure that our mikvah can operate without the burden of a mortgage.  Please join your friends and community members listed below by making your capital campaign pledge today (payable over 5 years).​
