Toiveling Utensils (Tevilas Keylim)

Pesach is a time of year when many new utensils are purchased, and the Keylim Mikvah is needed more than ever.

In extreme circumstances when you are unable to access a Keylim Mikvah or for items which will be damaged by tevillah, the Federation’s Mechiras Keylim service is available .
