Mikvah Blessings

One thing that leads people here everyday is a search for Mikvah (mikveh, mikva, mikve) blessings. In my experience, the prayers were written in a very large font on the side of the mikvah wall. You dunk three times. There are prayers on the first and third dunk, but the second is a chance to talk to Hashem one on one. If you are like me, it is a nice place to say the shema.

First dunk:

Transliteration: Barukh ata Adonai Eloheinu melekh ha‑olam, asher kid’shanu b’mitzvotav v’tzivanu al ha‑t’vila.

Translation: “Blessed are You, Lord, our God, King of the universe, who has sanctified us with His commandments and commanded us concerning immersion.”

Second dunk:

Silent prayer

Third dunk is the Shehecheyanu

Baruch atah adonai eloheinu melech ha’olam shecheyanu v’kiy’manu v’higyanu lazman hazeh.

Blessed are You, our God, Creator of time and space,who has supported us, protected us, and brought us to this moment.
