The Meaning of Mikvah


"When a man immerses the whole of himself in water of that nature, and completely and in direct contact enters this element, he completely… leaves the stage of Mankind and for the moment returns to the sphere of the world of elements, to begin a new life of Taharah. It is symbolic of a new birth."

(Comment of R' Samson Raphael Hirsch to Vayyikra 11:47)

Have a great day,
