What is Mikvah?

The Mikvah is a body of water gathered under very specific guidelines, used for the purpose of holiness and spiritual purity.  While the Mikvah has various uses, our Mikvah is primarily a women's mikvah.  According to tradition, water symbolizes purity, life and the abundance of G-d's blessings.  Immersion in the mikvah affords a Jewish woman the opportunity to connect with her husband, with Jewish women in the present and past, and with G-d in an extraodinary way.  It is an auspicious time for introspection and renewal.
