Two casual conversations with guests at the family Shabbat table shaped the last 12 years of Rivkah Bloom’s life.It started in 2005, with a Shabbat guest who, at 37, was newly observant. Discussing the mitzva of family purity, the guest expressed frustration about how complicated it was to keep track of the dates of a woman’s menstrual cycle related to using the mikve. She unwittingly inspired Bloom to create MikvahCalendar.com.
