Underwrite a Day at Mayyim Hayyim in honor of a loved one, milestone, or to keep the waters flowing. 

People’s lives are changed at Mayyim Hayyim every day, as they become Jewish, find healing, realize important milestones, celebrate new chapters, and move on from difficult ones. Every day, Mayyim Hayyim helps people engage with Jewish ritual on their own terms.

A gift of $1800 will underwrite one full day of Jewish moments that transform the lives of individuals, families, and our whole community.

What will inspire your Day at Mayyim Hayyim?

  • Marking the day you or someone you love became Jewish
  • Honoring a birth or adoption
  • In memory of loved ones
  • On the anniversary of a wedding immersion
  • In gratitude for healing from illness or trauma
  • Ensuring that Mayyim Hayyim is here for those who need us


Individual donors like you help us raise 75% of our annual budget. Underwriting a Day at Mayyim Hayyim tells the world that you understand the power of Jewish ritual to inspire, comfort, and connect us to our tradition and to each other.

"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.”

 — M.

 "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.”

 — J.

 "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.”
