More about At the Water's Edge

At Mayyim Hayyim Living Waters Community Mikveh and Paula Brody and Family Education Center in Newton, Massachusetts, we are dedicated to informing the community about mikveh and promoting its use in contemporary Jewish life.

Mayyim Hayyim has created these materials—activities, vocabulary lists, photographs, timelines, and quotes from mikveh users—primarily for groups of middle school through high school students gathering together to learn about mikveh in classrooms, living rooms, or mikvaot (the plural of mikveh). You can use the materials in a series of classes, in stand-alone lessons, as preparation for visiting Mayyim Hayyim or another mikveh, or to follow up a visit.

Throughout the materials we refer to “students” -- these are your learners of any age. We hope you and your students will find these lessons informative, flexible, and fun, and that they will expand your knowledge of mikveh and its use in Jewish life, both now and in the past.

These are the goals of the lessons:
• to learn what a mikveh is
• to discover how mikveh has been used in Jewish life in the past
• to explore the relevance of mikveh in Jewish life today
• to understand Mayyim Hayyim’s innovations in mikveh awareness and use
• to prepare for a tour of a mikveh
