Mayyim Hayyim Living Waters Community Mikveh and Education Center

Mayyim Hayyim Living Waters Community Mikveh and Paula Brody & Family Education Center is an intimate center for spirituality, learning, celebration and community, an international model of Jewish creativity and vitality.

Mayyim Hayyim is a 21st century creation, a mikveh rooted in ancient tradition, reinvented to serve the Jewish community of today.

We are a resource for learning, spiritual discovery, and creativity where women and men of all ages can celebrate milestones like weddings and b'nei mitzvah; where conversion to Judaism is accorded the honor and dignity it deserves; where survivors of trauma, illness or loss find solace; and where women can explore the ritual of monthly immersion on their own terms.
