When people convert to Judaism they ‘go to the mikveh.’ What does that mean? The mikveh 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 mikveh and find out what happens there. Rabbi Dardik will cover other uses of the mikveh like koshering dishes, preparing for significant events and the traditional Jewish ritual of family purity. You can ask anything, so come on over!
