"I am literally overwhelmed with gratitude for your help and for being the kind of people and place that have paved the way for our mikveh to take root and grow. I never feel alone through this process because Mayyim Hayyim is there for us and will help us find our own way." - Rabbi Jenny Solomon, Raleigh, NC

Mayyim Hayyim provides tailored, collaborative consultation services to communities interested in building a new mikveh or enhancing an existing mikveh.

Consultation services are available in many areas - from fundraising strategies to the cultivation of volunteers to enhancing the experience of immersion.

Consultation topics include:

  • Generating awareness and financial support for a community mikveh
  • Design—creating a space that serves a community’s programmatic and spiritual needs
  • Rabbinic Oversight—models for maintaining a kosher mikveh and creating customized policies for local constituencies
  • Recruiting, training, and supporting/supervising volunteer Mikveh Guides (attendants)
  • Teaching about mikveh—curricula for adults and children
  • Enhancing the immersion experience with creative ceremonies for life cycle events, healing and transitions


Fees for these services are kept low thanks to grants from the Los Angeles Jewish Venture Philanthropy Fund and the Lippman Kanfer Family Foundation.
