NEW! The Niddah Salon - Begins January 11

Join us for a monthly Niddah Salon at Mayyim Hayyim. Niddah is the practice of abstaining from sexual intimacy around the time of the menstrual cycle. The Niddah Salon will help participants think through the way niddah impacts issues of femininity, sexuality, and our connection to Jewish tradition.
