Canceled -Prepare Yourself / Immerse Yourself: Annual Chochmat HaLev High Holy Day Mikvah

Canceled due to algae in the lake.

Jeffrey Kessler and Janet Falk.

Sunday, October 9, 2016 – 9:00 am.

Location: Lake Temescal, Temescal Regional Park

Unfortunately event canceled due to algae in the lake. Please join us at Lake Temescal, where we will, as a community, immerse in living waters in preparation for the deep and sacred observance of the High Holy Days, which begin with Erev Rosh Hashanah at sundown a week after the Mikvah.

With prayer, song, and silence we will engage in the embodied act of spiritual purification, through immersion, in order to come more fully and mindfully into the experience of the High Holy Days. This immersion is open to both men and women.

Bathing suits are required at Lake Temescal. You may find this ritual more meaningful if you bathe immediately prior to coming to Lake Temescal, removing anything that separates your body from the water, such as make-up, jewelry, nail polish, etc.

Note: This ritual is for adults only. Don’t forget to bring a towel!
