ANSHE EMES KEYLIM MIKVAO IS NOW CLOSED DUE TO BROKEN RULES BY THE COMMUNITY
“One of these is the use of gloves while using the Mikvah.Though I am not there most of time, it is apparent that many people are disregarding the guildlines and using the Mikvah without gloves. This, of course, is a safety issues for our community and a simple בין אדם לחברו.
Another major issue is people continue to leave large amounts of Shemos around the mikvah. This has been going on for a long time but since reopening, the issue has grown. In the last couple of days three large bags of Shemos have been left by the mikvah (including a whole set of Zohar). This despite the fact that we have put up signs saying not to leave Shemos and that it remains the persons responsible. Despite this, people are leaving Shemos RIGHT NEXT TO THE SIGNS. The situation is impossible.
Because of the above, it has been decided to close the Mikvah to the community until a reasonable solution can be found to these issues. It pains us to do this but, as I mentioned previously, the situation is not tolerable.
Please inform your Kehillos of this change. Again we are sorry we have to take this step, but the situation can not continue in this fashion. “
Rabbi Yitzach Summers
These are bags of shemos literaly left under and almost on top of signs saying
“DO NOT LEAVE SHEMOS HERE”
There are also multiple signs around the yard instructing that gloves must be warn
These are NOT the only signs. The signs are at the front gate as one enters and in several places around the mikvah yard.
