Overview

Shalom and welcome to MikvahCalendar.com, your Rabbinically approved personal guide to Taharat Hamishpacha observance. Mikvah observance lies at the core of Jewish family life. Jewish tradition teaches that there are three partners in a marriage: the husband, the wife, and G-d. Observing the laws of family purity gives a couple the opportunities to bring holiness and sanctity into their marriage and welcome G-d into their home. MikvahCalendar.com makes it simpler than ever before to keep the detailed laws of family purity with confidence and ease.

One major component of Family Purity is to anticipate the upcoming period and intimately separate at that time. The purpose is to avoid intimacy at a time when a woman may become ritually impure due the onset of her period. Most women will anticipate the onset of their period according to three methods:

  1. The exact Hebrew date their previous period began (Veset HaChodesh)
  2. The Average 30 day Cycle (Onah Beinonit)
  3. Cycle based on interval of time from one period to the next (Haflaga)
