How do you manage mikveh during or after a three-day Yom Tov? Please see our article on Shabbat, Yom Tov, and Fast Days and relevant Q&A.

Here are links to a few of our posted questions on this and related topics. We hope you find them helpful!

If mikvah night falls on the second day of Rosh Hashana, when do you do which preparations and what time is the tevila? Are there limitations on what you can eat or do on the first day of Rosh Hashana?

I will have to go to the mikveh on Friday night of this upcoming 3- day yom tov (Rosh Hashana). I have gone on friday night before with preparations before shabbat but this is different. It will be two days into this 3 days without a shower and bath. Do I prepare for the mikveh 2 days ahead? What am I allowed to do on Yom Tov to prepare?

I am planning to go to the mikvah on the second day of chag. I will be eating the meal with my family, and they will likely have to wait for me to finish with my immersion. The only issue is, I am very uncomfortable announcing to the world that I am going to the mikveh. Do you have any suggestions for a way around this?
