    Isn’t it amazing that the time that Jewish women can have sex is the time they should be most fertile and these laws were made years before that knowledge.

  2. 8azile8

    Well said

  3. Ysd1912

  4. hojoleon

    I don’t think Oprah was trying to disrespect your cultures and traditions. It’s done merely to educate people about Jewish traditions. If she just talked about it by saying, “women go to the mikveh” or “women go through spiritual cleansing”, people will think that you jump in a bath tub and pour water on yourself. By showing it, people learn, appreciate and respect the people and their traditions. The only way to stop ignorance is by educating. That’s the purpose of the video.

    soooo true

    i am jewish and i think it is so inappropiate to let oprah tour the mikveh. it’s private and not to be put on national television. as a woman it’s upsetting. why do my non jewish neighbors need to know our halochos. shame on you lubavitch.

  8. rutapickle

    and men use mikvahs, too

  9. rutapickle

    why are we called a hidden culture? were not hidden!

    once you hit the age where you no longer have a period you no longer need to a mikvah. The same is for when a woman is expecting or is nursing and does not get her period.

  11. techanddancer

    “hi im oprah”

  12. garfieldclass10

    fancy mikveh

  13. emencz

    Men did not decided so: it was G-d in His infinite wisdom who commanded us to do. Why you think a man would limit himself sexually is beyond my understanding.

  14. TheToilet911

    can u have sex inside mikew ?

  15. TERRY72763

    It is spelled “MIKVEH”

  16. breeeegs

    The Mikvah is used to purify oneself before holy days, not only for the purposes of conversion 

  17. breeeegs

    Jews go into the water which cleanses you physically and spiritually before the sabbath or any other holy day. Really terrifying, I know.

  18. thekingofassholes

    theproudONE92 “I really recommend you folks put YOUR PRIDE DOWN and look into islam”. What an arrogant comment is that?!
    What about putting your own pride down?
    Everywhere people of all faiths are harrassed by intimidating muslims making up stories to get them into their death cult

  19. theproudONE92

    I have great reverence for the laws and teachings of Judaism. But I really recommend you folks put your pride down and look into Islam. I have a few friends who were Jewish and now Muslim. It’s not much of a chance but a very necessary one. Research the teachings of Islam and see what you conclude. Salam and Shalom fellow people of the book.

    I cannot hear this instructions. I had to hold the speaker to my ear.

    Hey look! It’s the building where jewish women go to get insulted once a month!

  22. BrooklynNotQueens

    there is nothing nasty in that Jewish prayer. since you are clearly a gentile i suggest you consult an actual Jew about what i wrote. sorry if you thought you were Jewish and your mother turned out to be a fine hasidshiksa.

  23. KingOystar

    why do you have to be so nasty?! i hope you realize sir that you are a coward because you hide behind a camera when you commit lashon hara.

  24. LouisBellton

    You did a great job. Thank you

  25. taniajosefa
