When people convert to Judaism they ‘go to the mikvah.’ What does that mean? The mikvah is a ritual pool where one immerses oneself in a spiritual ceremony that makes one a Jew. But what happens exactly? Will you be naked in front of people of the opposite sex? Join our own delightful Rabbi Dardik and other curious individuals to see a real mikvah and find out what happens there. Rabbi Dardik will cover other uses of the mikvah like koshering dishes, preparing for significant events and the traditional Jewish ritual of family purity. You can ask anything, so come on over!
