The Story of our Mikvah
The Lubavticher Rebbe instructed Rabbi Yossi and Mariashi Groner to build a mikvah as soon as possible once they would arrive in the Carolinas. 

A Mikvah was soon built in the basement of their home in 1981. The Groners ultimately recognized that the original mikvah posed the challenge of limited access for many. They felt that a larger, more attractive mikvah would better serve the community. For years they dreamed of building a larger one. Finally that new Mikvah was built and opened in December of 2015, at the Chabad Campus on Sardis Road. Learn about our beautiful new women's mikvah here

» Family Purity
The concept of family purity is as original and ancient as Judaism. It originates in the Torah itself, in the book of Leviticus. The literal translation of the Hebrew term mikvah means ‘a collection of a stationary body of water.'
 Under Jewish law, married women and brides-to-be follow the mitzvot, or commandment, to purify themselves after a menstrual period and prior to intimate relations with their husband. This is done by immersing in the mikvah where up entry, women recite a prayer. 
» The New Mikvah

Chabad built their mikvah following intricate guidelines documented in the code of Jewish law extending back to the Middle Ages on how to purify, or make Kosher, the water. A special expert on the design and construction of the mikvah was consulted in the process, a project that took nearly 18 months to complete.

The brand new mikvah opened in late December of 2015 and is now open to all Jewish women.
