Shower Instead of Tevila

How long does one need to be under shower to be considered tevilah (for a niddah). Does the entire body have to get wet?

Thank you for your question. The halacha is very clear that a niddah may only immerse in a kosher mikva, which has many halachic requirements. A shower would not qualify as a kosher mikva.

Sometimes it can be difficult to find a mikva nearby, especially when traveling, or in the covid-19 era where not everyone can get out easily. If you need help locating a mikva near you, please reach out to us and we would be happy to help.
