History of the North Shore Mikvah
The North Shore Mikvah Association was initially founded by members of the Great Neck Synagogue with the vision of becoming an aesthetically beautiful institution adhering to a high standard of halacha and spirituality. Over the years, our Mikvah has developed into a vibrant community fixture which has garnered partnership support from the Young Israel of Great Neck and the broader Great Neck Jewish community.
It was built in 1966 when the foundation of what is currently the Great Neck Synagogue’s main sanctuary was laid. The process of raising the necessary funds to properly design and construct the Mikvah took three years and in 1971 the Mikvah was incorporated as an independent organization and opened for full time use. It was staffed by volunteers from the community and served the needs of women throughout the North Shore. In 1982 a major fund raising effort was undertaken to renovate the Mikvah and to make it as beautiful as it was functional. In 1985 the newly renovated Mikvah was opened and dedicated in memory of Belle Goldwyn, who together with her husband Solomon S. Goldwyn, was a major force in planning and building the original Mikvah.
Today the North Shore Mikvah Association is a joint project of the Great Neck Synagogue and the Young Israel of Great Neck. With the explosive growth of women using the Mikvah, constant renovations and updates are taking place to maintain a Mikvah that is beautiful in its aesthetic appeal and maintains a high standard of halacha and spirituality as well.
