Entering the mikvah is significant for us as “the bride of
Messiah.” According to Ancient Jewish wedding customs, a
“bride to be” entered the mikvah. It was a ritual cleansing
that signified she was separating herself from her former way
of life and entering into a new way of life with her
Bridegroom. Entering the mikvah together is a sign of
unity. This year at our annual mikvah, after each person
(couple, family, Ministry team) went into the mikvah individually,
we all joined hands and went in together as the Bride of
Messiah. We sounded the shofar and then immersed ourselves in
anticipation of the second coming of the Messiah! In
this month's newsletter we are going to learn more about the
foundation of this unifying experience.
