Winters in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, a province right in the middle of Canada can get as cold as -40 F. But the small local Jewish community of 200-300 individuals is warm and thriving!
In Saskatoon, a few couples have already shown interest in Taharas Hamishpacha, but are not willing to dip in a freezing cold local lake or drive on icy roads 6-hours each way to Mikvah, as the local Shlucha regularly does.
When she couldn’t travel the 500-600 km to the closest Mikvah, the local Shlucha resorted to the dangerous options of using a cold local river with a rushing current or a spring-fed lake, where she has been hurt on jagged rocks.
You shouldn’t have to risk physical injury to go to Mikvah.
A mikvah transforms the physical into spiritual, the ordinary into the sublime. Be a part of this essential mitzvah and partner with Chabad of Saskatoon.
