Bracha after mikva


Hi do men make a bracha after going to the mikva? Thank you


No men do not make a bracha when going to the mikva. The reason is because the text of the bracha is “asher kidishanu bmitvoav, vtivanu…”  that He purified us with His mitzvos and commanded us… Therefore we only make a bracha when performing a Biblical commandment or at least when it is by Rabbinic decree. When men go to the mikvah, there may be very pious reasons for doing so, however it it still not considered a commandment, ( the way it is for women), therefore a man will never make a bracha (with the exception of a man becoming a ger).

Best Wishes
