Introduction to Mikveh

Intro to Mikveh


Adult groups, such as an adult B’nai Mitzvah class, Rosh Hodesh group, Torah or Talmud study class, sisterhoods, etc.


An interactive, discussion-based program that includes study of mikveh’s biblical roots and a hands-on tour of Mayyim Hayyim. Participants learn about what happens at an immersion and the many reasons — ancient and contemporary — that bring people to the mikveh. No prior knowledge about mikveh or Judaism necessary. This program can be adapted for learners of all faith backgrounds.


60-90 minutes



"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"


  • Mayyim Hayyim currently has limited availability for immersions while we undergo construction to repair damage incurred to the building following the extreme cold on February 4.
