he concepts of taharah and tumah – ritual purity given us in the Torah – transcend our comprehension. As the Rambam explains: “It is clear that the laws of ritual purity and impurity are decrees of the Torah that cannot be comprehended by human wisdom” (Hilchot Mikvaot 11:12). Because these concepts are divine in nature, the transition from the state of tumah (ritual impurity) to the state of taharah (ritual purity) must by definition be a Godly process. The culmination of this process involves preparation for, and immersion in, the mikvah.
