A miknic? What on earth is a miknic? Well, if you attend Temple Aron haKodesh, you know that a miknic is our family’s way of saying we are going to a beach picnic that will include immersion in the ocean.
In Hebrew, the word for the place to have that immersion is known as a mikvah, ergo ‘miknic’. (I like it!)
For Christians, we would call this the baptismal font. And we might be quite surprised to learn that it is not something that is a one time deal. Rather, there are several reasons to be immersed.
I encourage you to read this article at aish.com Mikvah Misconceptions and see the beauty of immersing in a mikvah. And gentlemen, just in case you thought this was for women only, here’s another perspective.
