The Mikvah of New Rochelle


Beautifully designed Mikvah facility in the heart of New Rochelle

About Us


The Mikvah of New Rochelle was established on December 7, 2008 to meet the needs of our growing community.

In order to enhance the mikvah experience, our facility offers two Mikvaot, seven preparation rooms, including two jacuzzi baths, radiant floor heating, plush linens and preparation supplies, handicapped accessibility, a parking lot, security cameras and a buzzer system at the entrance.

Throughout the year we operate as a women’s mikvah. Men’s mikvah hours are provided Erev Rosh Hashanah and Erev Yom Kippur.
The keilim mikvah is located in the YINR garage at 1149 North Avenue. For hours and access information, please contact the YINR office at 914-636-2215.
