Halacha - Mikvah
Submitted by Anne Pinzow  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: A 60 year old woman has never been to a mikvah, even though she had been married to a Jewish man more than 30 years ago. They divorced after four years and she has a get. She has undergone a spiritual reawakening. Is it proper for her to go to a mikvah though she is way past the age of menstration?

If she is currently not married it is neither necessary nor appropriate for her to go to the mikva.
