Episode #10 of Dear Yoetzet Podcast

In traditional Kallah classes, it is often emphasized that bathing is a crucial part of preparing for the Mikveh. However, certain situations, such as the unavailability of a bath or external circumstances like the Covid pandemic and specific conditions in Israel, can make bathing at the Mikveh challenging or unsafe. These scenarios raise important questions about the essential nature of the pre-Mikveh bath. In this episode, Yoetzet Halacha Lisa Septimus, alongside Rebbetzin Abby Lerner, veteran kallah teacher and educator, delve into the halakhic aspects of this issue. They also discuss women’s personal experiences and the most effective teaching practices surrounding this important aspect of Mikveh preparation.
