So there was a huge snow storm here this week. I got this email today:
….I heard that women who needed to go to the mikveh Sunday night [during the storm] called up Hatzolah and told them they needed to “go to work at the mikveh” (mikveh lady). So one of the Hatzolah guys said “Hey, there are like THIRTY mikveh ladies working tonight!!”
I dunno – the wind was howling and there was zero visibility – I probably would have waited till Monday night to immerse. I don’t think it was worth calling Hatzolah OR putting your life in such danger. And what is with the lying? I understand they wanted to be modest and not say they had to immerse that night, but please…
What do you think?
