    If pregnancy elevates women spiritually, how come they go to the mikvah after giving birth?

    • Because they’re no longer carrying that extra life. The higher spiritual status comes from having an extra soul within their bodies. When the baby comes out, the status is lowered, hence a reason for another dip!

  2. Beautiful Mikva. This was a very cute video.

  3. What a lovely Mikvah! Once again, great job!

  4. great blend of humor, information, clarity, and inspiration! Once again, you did a fantastic job!

    Great video! I am in the process of converting and trying to move from my tiny town with no synagogue/mikveh to NYC to start officially with a rabbi. The mikveh is a hard thing to grasp if you can’t see one for yourself and be walked through it. This makes much more sense, and it sounds SO NICE. I’m now looking forward to it every month! Thanks, Allison!

  7. What a moving presentation of mikvah. I cried at the “I do” recitation. Keep up the good work you are doing

  8. I cried! Thank you!
