Ritual baths of ancient Jerusalem

August 06th, 2015 by Zen

I was just introduced to the delightful term Mikveh.

There was just a 2000+ year old mikveh discovered in Jerusalem. It is regularly translated as a ritual bath.

But it looks like the difference between a mikveh and a baptismal fount is cultural and academic.

I was unaware of such a common commonality among the Jews. But of course, they would never call it baptism.

Mikvehs or mikvahs are still practiced.
