Film: Welcoming Waters

Exactly one year ago we launched our blog with “Mikveh Baby,” about some of our happiest immersions.  While shooting, filmmaker Jennifer Kaplan was so struck by the themes of welcome and inclusion that kept resurfacing, she decided she had to make a sequel.

What better way to celebrate than with another beautiful film?
