In partnership with Uprooted: A Jewish Communal Response to Fertility Journeys, Mayyim Hayyim presents a training for professionals and lay leaders supporting members of the Jewish community on fertility journeys. Uprooted’s successful workshop series, Holding Hannah’s Hand, offers valuable knowledge and skills from experts in the fields of mental health, pastoral counseling, and reproductive health. The training has been enhanced to share Mayyim Hayyim’s mikveh, Jewish communal, and ritual expertise to further support those on a fertility journey. This training is specifically for clinicians, mental health professionals, clergy, lay leaders, and Mikveh Guides.
This multi-workshop training will take place at Mayyim Hayyim on April 8 from 12:00 – 8:00pm and will include lunch and a light dinner. Contact Lisa Berman, Mikveh & Education Director, with questions.
