Shalom to the Rav! There has been a lot of snow this season and me and a bunch of friends went on a trip to the snow.

When we sent to make the barbecue, we realized that we forgot to Tovel the utensils and we are not near nay Mikvah or body of water. Are we allowed to Tovel the utensils in the high snow?

Baptism and Idolatrous Remedies
A Jewish woman that was baptized does she need to be 'purified' from it? She is sick in the hospital and the family keeps bringing her things blessed by the priest to help her get better.

Questions about education
Hello Rabbi, 4 years ago we moved to a new place where there is a community of newly religious families, and right in front of our house there is a kollel (married scholars study framework) and a synagogue. We slowly formed relationships with the community, and we gradually began to get stronger ourselves. We are married with one 15-year old girl and very much want more children. I asked the rabbi of the community and he told me to try treatments and I have done 6 unsuccessful treatments. Every time I undertake to keep another commandment and another commandment on myself, and now we observe Shabbat, family purity, kosher food, separating meat and milk, reciting blessings on the food we eat, and my husband prays three prayers a day. I also undertook to dress modestly, I wear long shirts on top of pants, my shirts are not short and I wear a bandana head covering, read the Psalms, give charity, etc., In all this process we have undergone, we’ve grown spiritually, and we have great faith in our Creator that He will grant us our request one day. But our increase religiosity has created a regular conflict with my daughter, because she is not ready for it in any way. If I want to put a long shirt over her pants so it will cover her knees, she opposes it, and she constantly tries to remove my head covering. When I talk about skirts or covering herself modestly, she gets anxious and starts to shout and cry, and becomes rebellious. I do not want to do an injustice to my daughter, and am trying to advance the process little by little, each time gently. When I ask people who understand such matters like the mikvah lady or the women in the community how come I’ve done so many things and it’s not helping, they tell me to undertake another thing and another thing. I do not know what else to do, I asked the Creator of the universe for direction, but I want to know what else I should do in such a situation. My husband says to do things slowly and surely, and occasionally he calms my daughter down, but without a doubt I feel the child is not at all calm and very hurt. What do you suggest?
Mikvah & Seperating Challah
Hello Rabbi, I am B”H pregnant, just about to enter my ninth month. I was wondering if I am allowed to bathe in the Mikvah a few days before I actually enter my ninth month to gain an advantage in having an easy delivery or should I wait until I actually enter my ninth month? An additional question that I have is I want to do Hafrashat Challah (seperating challah) – may I do the Hafrashat Challah on a different day than when I go to the Mikvah? Thank you very much and continue to have a wonderful and successful day.
