A state-of-the-art mikvah is to be built at the Yeshurun Synagogue in South Manchester.
The plans extend to an integral music system designed to enhance the spiritual experience.
The modern-Orthodox community in Gatley agreed to the project when the Manchester Mikvah Fund offered to fund the development. The fund will co-ordinate planning and construction, supported by donors who want to encourage mikvah observance.
Manchester's existing mikvah is in Hale, a 30-minute round trip.
