Prior to the building of this Mikvah in Sacramento, those needing a Mikvah traveled all the way to the Bay Area.</font></font></p><p><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Conversion to Judaism requires immersion in a Mikvah. Emulating the Jews entering the covenant at Sinai, one becomes Jewish when one immerses and accepts the Torah. If this Mikvah is needed for conversion, please have your Rabbi call the Mikvah administrator to make arrangements for you.</font></p> <p><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">  Utensils, pots and dishes are required to be immersed in a Mikvah before being used. One's table is likened to an alter and the transforming powers of the Mikvah waters sanctify the utensils. Unlike the appointments for women, which must occur after nightfall, dishes can be immersed at any time. </font></p> <p><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"> The Sacramento Mikvah has three small rooms: an entrance, a bathroom with shower, bath and toiletries for your convenience, and the Mikvah room.
