Fashionista to Headline Englewood Mikvah Dinner

(Courtesy of Mikvah of Englewood) The Rebbetzin Peggy Gopin Weiss Mikvah of Englewood is excited to be celebrating its third annual dinner event, which will be held virtually on December 29 at 8:30 p.m.

The Mikvah of Englewood, established in 2016, provides women of the expanding Bergen County communities the opportunity to fulfill the important mitzvah of family purity. In addition to offering services of ritual purity, the Rebbetzin Peggy Gopin Weiss Mikvah of Englewood is designed with the principles of modesty, privacy and sacredness in mind. With its beautiful design and hallways adorned with contemporary artwork, the mikvah creates a welcoming and spiritual environment for women to adhere to one of the foundational aspects of Jewish familial life. The mikvah itself features seven dressing rooms, including a large bridal room, two heated pools and a separate keylim mikvah. The Mikvah of Englewood was built with everyone in mind and there is an interior entrance for handicapped accessibility as well as a fully handicapped-accessible room.

This year the Englewood Mikvah, like the rest of the world, had to pivot overnight to adjust to the worldwide pandemic. It implemented new cleaning protocols, new online appointment-screening procedures, an appointment-only policy and changes to how we service our appointments. We strive to provide a safe, comfortable environment during these unsettling times.

On December 29, women from the Bergen County communities will tune in together to celebrate the Rebbetzin Peggy Gopin Weiss Mikvah of Englewood and its central role in religious law and life. Attendees of the event will also hear from guest speaker Adi Heyman. Adi Heyman is an New York City-based wife, mother and fashion writer whose work has pioneered Jewish lifestyle in the cultural space. Recognized for her conversion to Orthodox Judaism and her conservative influence on the international fashion industry, Adi is a lover of Israel and an advocate for the global Jewish community. She is the founder of the Jewish Fashion Council (JFC) and the #MeForWe Project. Adi’s current work in ethical, transparent fashion now couples with her ongoing goodwill initiatives.

The Rebbetzin Peggy Gopin Weiss Mikvah of Englewood relies on the generosity of the community to bridge the gap between usage fees and their operating budget. We rely on and are grateful to the community for their support, which allows the mikvah to prosper and continue to offer services of ritual purity against the backdrop of serene spa-like experience. The organizing committee encourages all members of the Englewood, Tenafly and surrounding Bergen County communities to join us for this critically important event and riveting evening. All proceeds from the event will go towards supporting the Mikvah of Englewood and its invaluable place within Jewish life.
