More Than Just a Mikveh

Posted on:

by Rabbi Lev Baesh Twice now, I have had the pleasure of celebrating weddings at Mayyim Hayyim, immediately following conversion with a Beit Din and immersion.  The first couple came from Canada with parents and a brother.  I had worked with her toward conversion via Skype and they wanted to complete her conversion at the […]

Big birthdays, marriages of our children, the births of four grandchildren, anniversaries. Like most of us, I think, many of the exquisite experiences […]

Eight is the Magic Number!

Posted on:

by Leah Hart Tennen, Mikveh Center Director When my three-year-old son, Lev, hears the word “birthday”, he says, “It’s MY birthday”. It feels a little bit mean to tell a small child that not only is it not his birthday, but it won’t be for a very long time, but I understand the reaction. Until […]
