Mayyim Hayyim, in partnership with founding members, Adas Israel Community Mikveh in DC, ImmerseNYC, Libi Eir Awakened Heart Community Mikveh in Raleigh, and MACoM in Atlanta is pleased to invite communities from around the world to join the Rising Tide Open Waters Mikveh Network.
The mission of the Rising Tide Open Waters Mikveh Network is to inspire, strengthen and support communities that embrace an open, inclusive and welcoming approach to ritual immersion as a way to mark life transitions.
We believe that providing for the spiritual needs of the entire spectrum of Jewish people will help create a more vibrant, welcoming, and inclusive community for everyone. Our goal is to foster a network so comprehensive that no one will have to travel far to access a Rising Tide mikveh experience.
