The Watershed Project is a trans-informed, gender-inclusive ritual for people who are transgender, nonbinary, or gender-questioning and who self-identify as Jewish, to any extent. The program’s goal is to expand understanding of the mikveh ritual in order for participants to experience the renewing, transformative benefits of immersion in a way that respects the integrity of identities that have been historically excluded from the tradition.
