Guayaquil's First Kosher Mikvah

The first ever Kosher Mikvah in Guayaquil, Ecuador was recently completed with the help of the globetrotting Mikvah consultant Rabbi Elozor Raichik.

This week the first ever Mikvah In Guayaquil, Ecuador was finished and is now only waiting for the next rain.

The Mikvah was designed by Harav Yirmiyahu Katz, the world-renowned Mikvah expert with the help of the globetrotting Mikvah consultant Rabbi Elozor Raichik.

Rabbi Katz, is the author of the Sefer Mikva Mayim. which is used today around the world by all Mikvah Builders/ Rabbis.

The interior of this beautiful Mikvah was designed by the renowned interior designer Ms. Karla Negrete. The Mikvah was completed in a record time of 3 months, and has separate Mikvaos for men and women.

In addition to following the Rebbe Rashab's system of Bor Al Gabai Bor, they added a separate rain storage tank (Oitzar) which will enable changing the rain water on a regular basis, similar to the Rebbe Reshab's Mikvah in Rostov. This was enabled by a custom concrete roof designated only for collecting rain water.

This week, Rabbis Katz and Raichik flew down to Ecuador to check out the system and get it ready for the next rain. After approving the system, he locked and sealed all the doors and it will remain under seal until the Mikvah fills with Mei Geshomim.

The Mikvah was built under the auspices of the Shliach Rabbi Uri Taweil.

"The state of the art, gorgeous Mikvah will greatly help and encourage people to start using the Mikvah, and encourage many people in keeping the great Mitzvah of Taharas Hamishpacha properly," said Rabbi Taweil.

The Jewish community of Guayaquil greatly thanked the local philanthropist Mr Johnny Czarninsky and his son Mr Gad Czarninsky for their tireless effort and involvement in funding and building the Mikvah complex.

The Mikvah was built in memory of their Mother/Grandmother, The Matriarch of the Family, Who recently passed away, Mrs. Rivkah Bas Geitel, A"H.

Re 1
Mendy's Relationship with Mr Johnny Czarninsky, began over 20 years ago, on merkas shlichus. (And the most interesting part of this friendship is that it all began with a rejection. Mendy was not deterred... and with the Rebbe broches the friendship blossomed).
