Mikva Erev Shabbat
Dear Rabbi, Why is it that there are many men who go to the mikva every Friday? I learned that mikva is something that a man goes to on Erev Yom Kippur. Is every Erev Shabbat considered like Erev Yom Kippur or something?
Immersion in a Chabad mikveh
In the last 9 years, I have been immersing myself in a Chabad mikveh. I was born to a secular family with a strong inclination to keeping tradition but my parents did not observe family purity. After I was married 10 years, I decided to start keeping the commandment of family purity. I live in Metulla and Metulla has two ritual baths, one of them operated by a Chabad rabbi. The local rabbi claimed that Chabad ritual baths may not be used by women who are not Chabad chassidim. How should I conduct myself? Should I continue going to the Chabad ritual bath or should I use the other ritual bath? Please answer soon as the issue is important to me. Thank you and have a good day.

Why is an unmarried woman forbidden to go to the ritual bath (mikvah)?
Is the prohibition for unmarried women to go to the ritual bath because they become “too pure” and in this sensitive situation they may attract angels of destruction or accusers of all kinds that will harm them? If not, why can’t single women who want to become more holy immerse themselves?? Many thanks in advance.
