Mikvah Salvation

The world is held up by kindness

A few weeks ago we posted about a woman who unfortunately had a debt with the Mikvah. With the help of some generous and caring Jews, we have managed to raise enough to pay off her debt in full, thus freeing her from this before Pesach.

By some Hashgachah Pratis I ended up talking to one of the mikvah ladies today. She shared with me that on many occasions when they needed to ask whether something would be paid towards this debt, the woman would break down and run out. Of course this is not the intention of the mikvah ladies. The women do whatever they can to make the experience at the mikvah an enjoyable and special one. However, as the mikvah lady explained, they do have expenses and do not have the means to give financially.

The mikvah lady went on to thank us for this project, saying: "you do not realise how big a mitzvah you are doing for the mikvah ladies in addition to the woman herself. Being able to greet her and help her without worry of her owing anything is a big relief all round."

Thank you so much to all those who are participating by giving monetary donations to this very important project. As we have said before, the real thanks comes from Hashem.

If you would like to help in really putting a smile on the face of a Jewish woman for Pesach, here is an added extra. If this woman is unable to pay her Mikvah fees, chances are that she also won't have the means to purchase lipstick that is Kosher for Pesach of hand or body cream that is Kosher for Pesach.

Please indicate on the envelop to Shoshanah Shear and inside indicate it is for the Mikvah Project, Purity with Dignity.

Please note: I do not know what she looks like, so don't know what colour would best suit her, I would suggest if you do send something, to send either a soft pink or a neutral colour.

Thank you for your kindness. We look forward to much more good news for Am Yisrael.
