Pre-Yom Kippur Mikvah Class and Immersion for Ladies

The Annual IYYUN Pre-Yom Kippur Class and Mikvah Immersion for Women

Monday Evening, Oct 7th at 9:00 pm

Rebbetzin Rochie will be teaching a class about the Mikvah and Yom Kippur, preparing ourselves for this most awesome of days, as well as some meditations to reflect upon when we are in the waters of the mikvah.

We will meet at 945 Eastern Parkway (between Albany and Troy)
at the home of Rivka Sara Chein
for a pre-immersion Yom Kippur talk, and light refreshments
thank you Rivka Sara for your open home, and generously hosting this event!

we will then walk to the mikvah together at 10:30 pm
Mikvah Mei Chaya Mushka
[Entrance on Troy corner Lefferts]
445 Troy Ave Brooklyn, NY 11203

We will begin the immersions at 10:45 pm

Please bring:

  • $25 (we are renting out the mikvah for our own use)
    (cash/credit card/checks accepted)
    ALSO – please consider making an additional donation to this incredible mikvah…. Erev Yom Kippur is the most ideal time for such a tzedakah – Mikvah Mei Chaya Mushka is providing an incredible service, and depends on donations to continue to function.
  • a robe, towel & slippers (the mikvah will not be able to provide on erev yom kippur)
  • please be showered, and prepared to immerse. (see information below for more details)

Some tips on preparing yourself:

  • When we go into the mikvah we are just as at the moment of our birth, nothing between our self and the living waters of the mikvah. the ideal way to prepare for this is to bathe beforehand, removing any obstacles that could block the water from totally encompassing you.
    For example -nail polish, make-up, all earrings, jewelery, etc… should be removed. (however, since it is not a ‘mitzvah’ immersion, rather a ritual immersion – if it constitutes a great difficulty or inconvenience, you may keep your polish, etc.. on)
  • This is a mikvah immersion that is practiced by both men and women alike – and is not a mikvah that is related to marriage. There is no need to be in a relationship or to be at any particular time of your cycle. This is a personal experience for you.
  • We will each immerse in the mikvah separately, this will be your own private experience, for this immersion, there is no need for a person to attend or observe.

Please email to reserve.
Reservations are a MUST

Looking forward to seeing you at this holy and momentous time.
With blessings for a Gmar Chatima Tova and Shana Tova u’Metukah – a sweet and bountiful and blessed new year!
