Rising Tide is a national network of mikva’ot (plural of mikveh) working to open the experience of mikveh to the entire Jewish community to help create a vibrant, welcoming, inclusive American Jewish future.
Rising Tide’s mission is to assist communities that wish to open a new mikveh or enhance an existing one, and to support the success and sustainability of mikva’ot around the country.
Rising Tide’s goal is to establish mikveh as part of the full diversity of the Jewish communal landscape by articulating best practices, fostering innovation, and building partnerships.
To this end, Rising Tide has convened a core group of founding mikvah organizations to share resources, and provide professional development and problem solving for staff and lay leaders. Founding members include: Mayyim Hayyim (Boston, MA); ImmerseNYC (New York, NY); MACoM, Metro Atlanta Community Mikvah (Atlanta, GA); Libi Eir Awakened Heart Community Mikveh (Raleigh, NC); and Adas Israel Community Mikvah (Washington, DC).
Rising Tide plans to open membership in 2018.
