‘Purity Patrol’ Helps Snowbound Women Reach the Mikveh

Monday, December 16th, 2013

The Taharat HaBayit organization has been using a 4-wheel-drive jeep to take snowbound women in Jerusalem to the local mikveh, the ritual immersing pool.

“The organization’s top priority is raising awareness to the importance of the family purity mitzvah,” the organization’s chairman, Rabbi Yechezkel Mutzafi, explained to the Hebrew-language Yediot Acharonot’s website.

“We see it fit to operate even with such serious conditions like rainy weather and heavy snow, so that as many women as possible adhere to purity laws and manage to reach the mikveh in the easiest and most convenient way.,” he said.
