Last year, I joined one of the Global Phone-Call Farbrengens for women and was inspired by the Mikvah 1000 campaign to increase the awareness for the Mitzvah of Taharas Hamishpacha.
Soon thereafter, I organized a special event focusing around the power of Jewish femininity and family purity, at the end of which participants toured our Mikvah.
One of the people attending, who I have never met before, came up to me following the event. She thanked me for the insightful teachings and said that she had always been interested in learning more about this topic.
She said she has been married to a Jewish man for 4 years now and was told by doctors that “she couldn’t have children.” We went on to speak a little more about the concept of building a family and the meaning of the Mikvah waters.
Later that week she came with her husband and asked for a crash course, following which she went to the Mikvah for the first time in her life.
On Thursday, 18 Teves 5776, at 7:55 PM, she gave birth to her long-awaited healthy baby boy. She has no doubt as to where the bracha came from.
If every person is a whole world, there is no question that the whole Mikvah event was worth it just for this one neshama who was able to enter the world in Tahara!
