Chavi Goes to the Mikvah!

Sometimes, you just have to take your camera with you to the mikvah.


Have questions about what it means to tovel or what exactly you do when you go to the kelim mikvah? Let me know. I'll try to answer!

I love that you made this a vlog post. I have a ton of things that I need to toivel. Gotta get me to that keilim mikvah!

The Curmudgeonly Israeli Giyoret says:

We used to live right next to the mikvah. It was incredibly convenient for tvilat kelim (sorry, but "toiveling" sticks in my throat), if occasionally awkward when we'd be out for an evening stroll and run into a female friend with a "suspicious" bag. As a nurse, though, I'm used to finessing biological situations.

One time, a relative brought us a set of stainless steel flatware from the States, Was he ever surprised to see the same flatware on the table at dinner a few minutes later. We just sent one of the older kids to immerse the whole set, and then washed everything immediately afterwards.

We had waterfront property without the disadvantage of hurricanes.

Are you fully releasing the items when you put them in? It's hard to see in the video but just to be clear there should be no barrier between the water and the item, including hands.

@Ed That was the goal :)

@Lullie I'm a master of the "release and grab" in the kelim mikvah! Believe it or not. But someone did mention to me that I shouldn't speak between the bracha and the completion. D'oh.

@CIG Love it! I wish we lived right next to a mikvah. We're close in Teaneck, but in the Poconos we got nothing.

You got them from IKEA? Did you read about the owner's former Nazi Affiliation?

Its better to say "mikveh keilim" which is how it's written in Hebrew...
