A mikveh is a place for transformation, healing, and renewal. The Rising Tide Open Waters Mikveh Network is working to make mikveh immersions possible for everyone in the Jewish community.

The Rising Tide Network was founded to inspire, strengthen, and support individuals and communities in opening the doors to the mikveh, making the experience as inclusive and accessible as possible. We believe that providing for the spiritual needs of the full diversity of the Jewish people will help create a more vibrant, welcoming, and inclusive community for all.

Through Rising Tide, Mayyim Hayyim is leading the Open Mikveh Movement. Rising Tide is committed to fostering and strengthening open mikva’ot all over the United States, and indeed around the world, so that no Jew has to travel far to experience everything that the mikveh experience offers.
