"I was thrilled that by sponsoring the day, it gave me so many opportunities to share with so many people why I love and support Mayyim Hayyim. People saw the Facebook posts and reached out to wish us a happy anniversary and to congratulate us on celebrating by sponsoring the day. It really was a gift for me!"
— Marion Gribetz
"I first immersed at Mayyim Hayyim to find healing after my miscarriage. A year later, I returned to immerse with joy and gratitude in my ninth month of pregnancy. My partner and I are sponsoring our daughter’s first birthday in honor of the peace and sanctity Mayyim Hayyim has brought to our lives.”
"Today I immersed to prepare for my bar mitzvah at age 64, also the anniversary of my becoming Jewish. When I found out my wife and close friends decided to sponsor this day at Mayyim Hayyim in honor of my Jewish journey, I was truly moved.”
"Three years ago, I immersed at Mayyim Hayyim before I came out to my friends and family. I continue to immerse every year to mark this day, and am grateful that Mayyim Hayyim was there to help me embrace my true self in a Jewish way. I’m sponsoring this day at Mayyim Hayyim, the first place I felt truly proud to be an LGBT Jew.”
