What is a Mikveh and What Makes it Special?
Mikveh (Hebrew: Collection of Water). A Mikveh is a gathering of water that has a designated connection to "fresh" or living water. Water is the primary source of all living things. It has the power to purify, to restore and replenish life. A Mikveh must be filled with living water from a flowing source that has never been dormant, such as fresh spring water, rainwater, or even melted snow. The pool is designed specifically for immersion, according to the rules and customs of Jewish Law. It must contain a minimum of 200 gallons of living water. The water is kept under strict hygienic control, cleaned daily and chlorinated.
