Cold - But Pure

Snow!!!!!!!! I love snow!

I also love mikva! Ahhhh to be pure!

May I combine my two loves and dunk in a mikva of snow? The Beis Yoseph says that I may. However the Rema says that some are machmir to wait for the snow to melt. [See Yo"d 301/30 and a lengthy discussion in Rav Ovadia's Taharas Habayis Vol. 3 Page 319]

Just one thing. If you accept the ruling of the Beis Yosef, DON'T bundle up before going in. And it's COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLD.

But ya know - if a few mishigene Chicago Bears fans can do it [these shirtless maniacs always get on TV when it snows] - I can do it!

Rebbe, didn't you ever hear of the Polar bear club. there are branches of it around America - they go into freezing water and then most quickly run out.

I remember them from the six o'clock news. Hey, didn't you make Aliyah?

MAZEL TOV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
