Renew creativity with a plunge into the waters. This page features poetry, short stories, and art. See submission guidelines at "Announce, Write, Draw" tab.

The idea for this page came to me in a dream, I saw waters being poured over women in a sacred pool, being cleansed and refreshed, and I heard the words, "Call it Mikvah, call the journal 'Mikvah'." The mikvah is a place for ritual purity, and is visited by men and women in Jewish traditions during different times. - Ed.
