MIKVAH 

The mikvah (immersion pool) offers the individual, the community, and the nation of Israel the remarkable gift of purity and holiness.

The Torah prescribes going to a mikvah in order to become ritually pure. For many women, immersion in a mikvah yields a spiritual high, a state in which nothing stands between you and G‑d; a return to the innocence of birth; a sanctification of all that is feminine. In fact, it is not just your soul and body that become spiritually uplifted – it is your entire family and home.

Though not a decree from the Torah, many men go to a mikvah in preparation for Shabbat or a holiday.
