About Mikvah

In the time of the Beit haMikdash [Temple], immersion in a Mikvah was a prerequisite for participation in a wide range of rituals. Today, in traditional Judaism, Mikvah is used primarily in four areas: conversion, immersion of utensils before use, immersions before the Sabbath and holidays, and immersion as part of observing family purity.

Many educators and clergy in the Lehigh Valley are available to talk about Mikvah use from a variety of perspectives. The following educators and clergy have volunteered to serve as resources:

    Moshe Reem (Rabbi, Temple Beth El)
    Temple: 610-435-3521

    Barbara Sussman (Community educator)

    Rabbi David Wilnsky (Rabbi, Congregation Sons of Israel)
    Synagogue: 610-433-6089
