- "We have seen that these natural descents are aspects of ascent. Why, however, must this process be accompanied by immersion in a mikvah, and what has water to do with changing one’s status from tamei, 'impure,' to tahor, 'pure'?" (https://www.chabad.org/theJewishWoman/article_cdo/aid/1542/jewish/On-the-Essence-of-Ritual-Impurity.htm)
- "One who is tahor can enter the sanctuary, the dwelling-place of God’s presence and the heart of Israelite ritual. One who is tamei cannot." (https://www.myjewishlearning.com/keshet/parashat-chukkat-cleanunclean/)
- "Any keilim, utensils or appliances, that now become tamei will require immersion in a mikveh or spring, and will become tahor again at the subsequent nightfall." (https://www.yeshiva.co/midrash/41868)
