Conversion Ceremony at the Mikveh
Anonymous
Take a few moments for silent personal reflection before continuing and entering the Mikveh.
"With pure waters will I purify you, that your life be pure and blameless. A new heart will I give you, and a new spirit I will place within you. I will direct you in my teachings. and you shall keep my statutes. You shall be my people, and I will be your God. " (Ezekiel 36:25-28)

Enter Mikveh, take deep breath, immerse completely and remain under water for a few moments.
Stand, take a breath. And say the blessing:

Barukh atah Adonai Eloheinu melekh Ha'olam, asher Kidshanu b'mitzvotav v'tzivanu al ha-tvilah.
Blessed are you, Eternal God, ruler of the universe, who sanctifies us through mitzvot and has enjoined us concerning immersion.

Dunk a second time!
Stand, take a breath. And say the blessing:

Barukh atah Adonai, Eloheinu melekh Ha'olam, sheh-hecheyanu, v'kiy'manu, v'higianu, la-zman ha-zeh.
Blessed is the Eternal, the God of all creation, who has blessed me with life, sustained me, and enabled me to reach this moment.

Dunk a third time!
Stand, take a breath, and recite:

Shema Yisrael, Adonal Eloheynu, Adonai echad.

HEAR O ISRAEL, THE ETERNAL OUR GOD, THE ETERNAL IS ONE!
