Immersion Ceremonies

Mayyim Hayyim’s Ritual Creation Team has developed a library of original ceremonies to help personalize your mikveh experience.

Every ceremony includes a pre-immersion kavanah (intention), blessings or kavanot (intentions) to follow three immersions, and a concluding reading. Ceremonies may include songs, contemporary poems, and traditional liturgies. They can be read privately, with the assistance of a Mikveh Guide, or with friends and family.
