Mikveh Visit for an Introduction to Judaism Course


Adult learners, participants in an Introduction to Judaism, Pathways to Judaism, or conversion class.

*This program is scheduled in coordination with the Introduction to Judaism/Pathways educator.


A visit to the mikveh is an important part of an Introduction to Judaism or Pathways to Judaism course. We welcome participants to visit Mayyim Hayyim to learn about how mikveh is part of Jewish life in general and the conversion experience in particular.

This program includes essential elements from Introduction to Mikveh with a focus on the experience of conversion at the mikveh. Teachers discuss the day of conversion, concerns, answer questions and introduce the idea of immersion as a lifecycle ritual that can be revisited at other moments of transition


60-90 minutes



"Now I feel like I can actually get excited about my conversion!"


  • COVID-19 Update

    At this time Mayyim Hayyim is open for immersions and has made a number of adjustments to our regular procedures. Our education center and art gallery are temporarily closed to minimize traffic and possible exposure in order to create the safest possible environment for those who wish to immerse. See here for more information about using the mikveh during this time.
