The Waze navigation application has begun offering users a way to locate mikvehs by location, Ma'ariv reported Monday.

Being done in coordination with the Ministry of Religious Services, the app provides data on the Jewish ritual baths, including telephone numbers, opening hours and handicapped accessibility.

Searching for the word "mikveh" in the Waze app will show you the one closest to you and the directions to get there. Ministry Director Elhanan Glatt is quoted in the report as saying that "improving religious services and making them more user friendly is a strategic objective we set out for ourselves. The deputy minister, Rabbi Eli Ben Dahan, added that since Wave accompanies travelers on every journey, "ti's only natural that there would be religious services as well,"
