Mikveh Bess Israel was founded in 1852 by European immigrants establishing permanent roots in Hartford. A century later, Holocaust survivors saw in the mikveh a source of renewal and registered it as a nonprofit corporation. Though it has had several locations over its history, the mission to provide a safe and sacred space for cleansing and purification has never wavered. Mikveh Bess Israel is sustained by dedicated volunteers and by donations small and large.

We are proud to be a community mikveh for all Jews in the Greater Hartford community to use, in consultation with their Rabbi.
