CHEVRAT NASHIM: Mikvah of the South Shore


The ritual bath, or mikvah, has always been the heart of any Jewish community for centuries. Due to the central mitzvot of Taharat Hamishpacha (family purity), the mikvah is an essential element in the growth and vibrancy of the Jewish population.

Since its inception in 1983, Chevrat Nashim is an organization entirely run by women and has been the only community-wide mikvah serving all the Jews of the South Shore. Chevrat Nashim has been a pioneer in empowering women both spiritually and physically. It has been the source of exceptional programming, and has run a mikvah that is committed to providing Jewish women with the most dignified immersion experience.

In the coming months, we look forward to renovating and expanding the mikvah facility to transform it into a beautiful space that will be accessible to every Jew and reflect our community’s commitment to the value of inclusion. Please visit the “renovations” tab for more information. Please support our mission.

We are located at 9 Dunbar Street in Sharon.  Our entrance is on the right side of the Kol Tikvah building. Please park in the Kol Tikvah parking lot or on Dunbar Street closer towards Main street and not directly in front of the synagogue.
