The construction of the Orange County Mikvah. Rabbi Yirmiya Katz, a world renowned authority in the Laws of Mivkah construction served as our consultant, supervising the complicated process. The Mikvah has a reservoir for rain water.When the rain did not come we went to the mountains to get snow. See the Photo Gallery "Snow for the Mikvah" to see that story.

The Mikvah is open. Call for reservations.
A Mikvah must be filled with natural rain. If that is impossible snow or ice from a river may be used. This year there was little rainfall in Southern California. There was no choice but to make the trek to the mountains to collect 300 bags of snow. The closest snow was 7 hours away in high up in the mountains of Mammoth. Fulfilling the requirements of Jewish law are difficult, Rabbi Yimri Katz, the renowned Mikvah authority accompanied a team from Orange County including Gary Winkler, Rabbi Levi Blesofsky and Rabbi Shuey Eliezrie. THey left at 6 AM two weeks before Pesach. At 3 AM they returned to Yorba Linda with a freezer truck filled with snow.
