The 2024 Rising Tide Gathering

Local Tide Pools – In Person Gatherings in May & June 2024 

This year, we want to support you to gather IN PERSON with mikveh makers nearby! Mikveh staff, volunteers, guides, lay leaders, Jewish professionals, clergy, artists, donors, students, immersees, and ritualists around the world will come together in local “Tide Pools” to connect, learn, and be inspired about growing our movement for inclusive, accessible mikveh. 

Host a Rising Tide Pool in your community in May or June 2024. Invite folks in your region to meet up IRL (in real life)! Rising Tide Pools may be hosted by organizations, individuals, or partners. Rising Tide will support you in hosting any kind of mikveh-themed event in your community.

The Global Stream Virtual Gathering on Thursday, June 6, 2024 

Let’s bring the whole open mikveh movement together! Gather online with Jewish lay leaders, professionals, clergy, students, funders, volunteers, and educators around the world who are working to make mikveh inclusive and accessible to everyone in the Jewish community.  

At this virtual convening, you will gain new wisdom, relationships, and inspiration for Jewish ritual water immersion. Whether you are a mikveh expert or just curious enough to dip your toes in, you are welcome in this space of learning, connection, and co-creation. 

Participants will be inspired by an innovative keynote experience, build relationships at an interactive art gallery and mikveh fair, and celebrate the future of our movement with the annual Rising Tide Wellspring Awards.
