Obtaining a calendar

Thank you for your question.
Mikvah.org, a Chabad organization, will mail its calendar to Israel. There are also Chabad calendars put out by Rabbi Yerucham Fishel Jacobs, Kfar Chabad, Israel 011/972-3-9607-402 firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that there are differences between Chabad calculations and the practices of other communities.
Another, non-Chabad, calendar can be ordered through JME INTERNATIONAL POB 43206 Jerusalem 91431 Israel Tel/Fax: 08-974-1030. In the past, the Rabbanut has published a calendar, which may be available through your mikvah.
A skilled kallah teacher can teach you how to use a standard calendar for niddah purposes. It is advisable to review the laws of Onot Perishah before beginning to use any calendar.
