Join us as we delve into the inner dimensions of the mikvah process and understand how the physical process that a woman undergoes represents a psychological, spiritual and emotional journey that all of the Jewish people are on.
Indeed, couples enjoy marital intimacy well past menopause when the absence of nida precludes the necessity for immersion in a mikvah. The holiness is in the absence of sexual intimacy during nida; the holiness is, as well, in the intimacy itself - the mutual respect and love, consideration and dignity. The holiness of enjoying marital intimacy as one of the pleasures of Shabbat remains, as does the recognition of the awesome days of Yom Kippur and 9th of Av when we refrain from intimacy.

What about sexual holy relationships after the body stops Niddah. Is everything holy without the waters But an extra blessing to continue to immerse till your 90. People are intimate well past niddah.

Hi. Thanks so much for this in depth explanation of what is embedded in the thoughts and spiritual level of Mikva. I am a baby in my learning curve re-exposing myself to my birth religion; Judaism. I have been learning and praying at the new JLI Chabad Lubavitch centre in Winnipeg Canada. Good Shabbos as Pesach to you and your loved ones and to all. Chaim Peikoff

Immersion of Mind, Body and Soul
We live so far away from any available classes and yet our kind Rebbetzin Sarah teaches myself and my older daughter many necessary ways of daily living . Thank you for your audio class on Mikveh, we are converts in a place where there is very little jewish education available.We thank Hashem for the internet and for learned teachers like our wise and kind Rebbetzin and for you who bring to us knowledge of things so kedushah (holy), not only the importance of knowing but of the doing....
