Mikveh on Erev Rosh HaShanah

Updated: Sep 12, 2023

The Daily Halacha Moment - Mikveh on Erev Rosh HaShanah🏖

‎״כל השונה הלכות בכל יום - מובטח לו שהוא בן העולם הבא״ (נידה עג ע״א, מגילה כח:)

“Anyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-come” (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)


Is there a custom for men to dip in the mikveh on Erev Rosh HaShanah?

What should one do if one cannot go to a mikva?


It is a praiseworthy custom to go to the mikveh on erev Rosh HaShanah. Preferably, one should go to the mikveh earlier than about an hour before chatzot. [1]

One who is unable to should pour on himself around 12.5 liters (or 600 grams) of water. This can be accomplished by turning on the shower and standing under it. It is good to note, There is no difference between using hot water and cold water.[2]


[1] Mishnah Berurah §26; Kaf HaChaim §82.

[2] See Ben Ish Chai, Netzavim 1:3. Chazon Ovadia, Yamim Nora’im, p. 57 stresses that one may not recite a berachah on this tevilah, and one who does has recited a berachah levatalah. See also Yalkut Yosef, Yamim Nora’im, pages 149–155; Torat HaMoadim, Yamim Nora’im, p. 29 and on; and Orchot Maran, vol. 1, p. 252.
