Quikvah: Mikvah at Quinn's Pond

Sunday, September 16, 2018 • 7 Tishrei 5779

4:15 PM - 5:30 PMQuinn's Pond, 3150 W Pleasanton Ave at Whitewater Pkwy, Boise

Join us for a "quikvah"--a quick purifying mikvah dip before Yom Kippur. We can assure you that the water temperature will be perfect for renewal! Meet us at the north shore of Quinn's Pond, nearest to the Idaho River Sports building. Parking is available near the pond and on the street, and it's a great location for biking.

There are at least a couple of reasons to do this immersion:
1. To be ritually pure in preparation for Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year.
2. As a symbol of conversion. Just as a convert immerses in a mikvah and becomes a new Jewish person, so too, during the Days of Awe we all want to do teshuvah (repentance) and become new people.

Note that there is no lifeguard on duty and we will jump into deep water, so children must be closely supervised, and every participant must be able to swim and tread water.
