  1. Is one permitted to swim together with his wife when she is tahor?
  2. Until what age can parents swim with their children of the opposite gender (in a private pool)?
  3. Would the halacha change if we assured that the girls wore bathing suits that fully covered them?


  1. A man may swim together with his wife in a private swimming pool when she is tahor.
  2. A father may go awimming with his daughter until the age of five -six, and a mother with her son until the age of three. This is because the son should not be seeing his mother dressed in a not tznius fashion.
  3. If they are wearing bathing suits that fully cover them, it is permitted for a parent to swim with their child, in a pool.
