ROSH CHODESH AV 5781  

            Laws Pertaining to Immersion during the Nine Days and after Tisha B’Av

   A woman planning to immerse during The Nine Days should bathe with hot water before immersion.

   A woman planning to immerse during The Nine Days should cut her nails before immersion.

A woman may NOT immerse on the evening of Tisha B’Av, the Mikvah is closed because intimacy,  and  marital relations are forbidden. Therefore, a woman should immerse on Motzei Tisha B’av, after the fast.

A woman planning to immerse after Tisha B’Av should perform all of her preparations on Erev Tisha B’Av.  After the fast day concludes she should briefly re-cleanse herself before immersion.

A woman planning to immerse after Tisha B’Av should not prepare until AFTER NIGHTFALL.     (She may certainly break her fast before preparing for immersion, and then re-wash/brush/floss before immersing.)

Chodesh Tov! (Best wishes for a good month and an easy fast!)
