Toronto Jewish Community Center


Toronto, ON

The greater Toronto Community has sought to relocate their existing mikvah to the new Jewish community center. The program includes a single immersion pool along with one changing room and a single bath/toilet room. In addition, a beit din room will connect to the mikvah pool along with a gathering/waiting room with direct access to the changing area. Clothing closets will be included in the program for individual visitors as well as a linen/utility storage. The small, tiled pool will be filled with water to shoulder height. There is an additional vessel called the bor that holds "living water." Through a conduit, this water "kisses" the water in the immersion pool. The spaces are designed with tiles evoking basic earth tones, coupled with water and intriguing lighting, give the bath a sense of historic connection while packaged in a contemporary tranquil design. The ritual of immersion in its resurgence is a powerful tool in the modern search for spirituality and meaning.
