Keri flower

Keri is a Hebrew word which factually means "happenstance", "frivolity" or "contrariness" and has come to mean "seminal emission". The term is usually employed in Jewish law to pass on particularly to the regulations and rituals regarding the release of semen, whether by nocturnal emission, or by sexual activity. By extension, a man is said to be a ba'al keri after he has discharged without yet carrying out the associated ritual cleansing necessities. 

The biblical regulations of the Priestly Code specify that a man who had experienced a release of semen would become ceremonially polluted, until the evening came and the man had washed himself in water; any clothes or bits of skin which the semen encountered would also become ceremonially impure, until they had been washed in water and the evening had come.
