« Boys of Summer: Frank flanked by Steve Yeager and Tom Lasorda after a Dodger win | Main | Introducing the Poets of New Zealand »

Have you ever been to a Mikveh? I believe there are some in NY and certainly in Brooklyn. You say "women's mikveh" at one point, but is there an equivalent for males?
Thank you for this fine "last" post.

Yes, of course I've been to a mikveh, more than one. Often there's a separate mikveh for women and for men, though sometimes they use the same one at different hours. I'm no expert, of course. It was just deeply sad to me that it took so long for anyone In Catalunya to figure out that the structure was a mikveh. The Catholic analogy would be like finding a small font and not realizing it was for baptism.
