Wow!
The work that Rabbi Eli and Rochele Raskin do is fantastic, they are amazing! The New Haven community is really lucky to have them there. They are a real asset.

What's the halacha?

Are there any halachic parameters for a men’s mikva ( size, water, etc)?

Same as any mikvah

That have the same law but since it is not a mitzvah they usually are not as strict with maintenance etc

Seriously?

A kosher mikvah is a kosher mikvah.
Men don’t need a kosher mikvah and there’s no halacha for men to go to mikvah.
But if you’re building one, you make it kosher.

very good work
