Mega Mikvah Mayim Metaher Men

Being a Litvak, I nevertheless make an effort to attend the Mikvah twice yearly; Erev Rosh Hashanah and Erev Yom Kippur.

Lately I've been going to the second largest Mikvah in the world. The Atlantic Ocean.

The late September, early October coolness leaves the beaches free of Nekaivos, enabling me and the many other men who attend to enjoy a late season dip.

The waves are terrific, and if not for the shortage of time on these Erev Yom Tov days, I would enjoy a real swim.

Come join me next year, perhaps we can start a Jewish Polar Bear Club.


  1. How cool was the water temperature?
    At least you don't have to pay the mikva fee

    1. If you join us next year, I'll pay your transportation fee.

      The water was like any swimming pool. Cool at first but enjoyable as soon as you are submerged.

  2. Not to quibble but the Pacific is the largest Mikveh

    1. Thanks for the quibble. Glad to see some people still read this blog. Correction updated.
