Programs for Adults

Mayyim Hayyim hosts over 40 groups of adults and college students annually.

We are honored to have welcomed Rosh Hodesh groups, sisterhoods, adult b’nai mitzvah classes, Israelis, federation leaders from England and the former Soviet Union, senior center residents, clergy groups, adults with developmental delays, and Introduction to Judaism classes, among others.

The goal of Mayyim Hayyim’s education programs for adults is to leave with a basic understanding of mikveh as defined by our tradition and in our own day, where it is used to mark a wide variety of life transitions.

Program content is tailored to each group’s interests and background. Engaging and experiential, sessions for adults encourage questions throughout. Interactive elements may include text study, an “observation exercise” with a self-tour of the facility followed by reflective conversation, or a workshop about creating a personal mikveh ceremony.

"A great opportunity to learn about the inclusive mikveh in Greater Boston. Mayyim Hayyim is not only a spiritual and religious place, but a welcoming space for anyone who is interested in learning"
