During a meeting of the Knesset Committee for the Advancement of Women the director-general of the Ministry of Religious Services, Elchanan Glatt reported in the coming months there will be a new addition to the Waze app, one that directs people to mikvaos. The Waze add on app is expected to provide information pertaining to the location of mikvaos in Eretz Yisrael as well as operating hours and a contact phone number.
The new application will significantly facilitate finding a mikve in a city for those who are traveling or simply new to an area. In addition, Glatt stated that during 2014 the ministry will complete efforts to ensure there is a mikve that is accessible to the disabled in every city of the country.
