Scroll down for information on Eruv, Mikvah, Tevilas Keilim, Hatzallah etc.

Eruv

The Orlando Torah Center shul is within the boundaries of the eruv. The eruv includes the subdivisions of Sand Lake Hills, Orange Tree, Palm Lake area, parts of Hidden Springs and Bay Park. The sidewalks on Wallace and Apopka-Vineland Rd. are not included in the eruv boundaries. For specific questions, you may call Kosher Orlando at 407-412-3199. 

For Pesach our eruv experts put up Eruvin in various developments (some public, some private).

We usually put up an eruv in the following developments for Pesach: The Retreat at Champions Gate both new and old, Encore, and Windsor Westside. This past year we put up an eruv in Solterra as well but not in previous years.

In Encore the Eruv is often up throughout year – check with Kosher Orlando at 407-412-3199 before booking.

If you would like to have an Eruv put up at other times throughout the year, please contact Kosher Orlando at 407-412-3199. Keep in mind that this can be a costly endeavor.

Mikvah Tahara Chabad Orlando

25-30 minutes from Orlando, 35-45 minutes from the developments.

Tevillas Keilim

According to most Rabbonim Tevilas Keilim requires a natural body of water. Generally named lakes are natural (you can check google maps). 
Boat ramps are the easiest way to  reach the water.
Pro Tip: Although most bodies of water in Florida have alligators it is extremely unlikely that you will come across one.

Lakes Down Boat Ramp

9619 Conroy Windermere Rd, Windermere, FL 34786

This is quite far from the developments but only about 10 minutes from the Kosher Winn Dixie on South Apopka Vineland Rd.

We recommend this one as it is very easy to dip off the boat ramp, and if something falls in, it’s only about a little more than a foot deep (Depending on the tide).
This is the one used by us locals.

Davenport -Northeast Regional Park

Poitras Rd 2, Davenport, FL 33897, USA

Hatzallah

Orlando does not have a year-round Hatzalah.

During Pesach and at times during other peak seasons there is a Hatzalah that forms.
