Water is the primary source of all living things. It has the power to purify, to restore and replenish life. A Mikvah must be filled with living waters from a flowing source that has never been dormant, such as fresh spring water, rainwater, or even melted snow. The water is kept under strict hygienic control, cleaned daily and chlorinated.
