Mayyim Hayyim provides a beautiful place for me to carry out, what could be an uncomfortable Jewish ritual. But my experience at Mayyim Hayyim has never been uncomfortable. It is easy for me to make an immersion appointment, my guides there are always so helpful, respectful and discreet. The few times that I have had to use a mikvah when I was not at home in Boston, I sorely missed Mayyim Hayyim- and it also made me realize how lucky I am to live in Boston with access to Mayyim Hayyim- a progressive place that cares about Jewish values and tradition and above all people.

A unique experience. After going through 5 years of a contentious divorce I wanted to cleanse myself from the past and prepare to start a new chapter. Mayyim Hayyim was the perfect place. In the serene environment of the Mikveh it felt comfortable to immerse myself into the old traditions and have a meaningful spiritual experience. Later, in another part of the beautiful building, we combined traditional and modern ways to celebrate the milestone with family and friends. Now, 5 years hence, I continue to remember this day as exceptionally significant and empowering.

They make mikvah use comfortable for a first-timer. The space is beautiful. I didn't appreciate how great the space is until I was traveling and needed to use another mikvah. The mikvah guides give you as much privacy as you want and are happy to help, even with unusual requests. Aliza Kline, the director, does a great job of explaining mikvah use and design and its role in Jewish life.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The accessible experience at the mikvah.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

offer more classes, have less of a fund-raising burden for mikvah maintenance, and lower the suggested donation.

Ways to make it better...

every single mikvah guide were as consistently great as the best of them are.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

many of their target clients don't know what the mikvah has to offer them. Not all of the member congregations promote use of Mayyim Hayyim. Many people see the suggested donation as a barrier to regular use.

I celebrated with friends and family the completion of my cancer treatment, 5 years ago when Mayyim Hayyim was quite new. I watched as it progressed over the years, immersing to mark special moments in my life, viewing amazing art shows and attending inspiring lectures, and participating in writing a spiritual guide for Jewish women with cancer. The outreach and effect on the wider community is wonderful.

This is the most amazing Mikveh! It was a beautiful peaceful experience. If only there was a Mayyim Hayyim in the NJ/NY area!!! The online help is wonderful. Truly, a mikveh experience for women who are not orthodox Jews is something that is incredibly wonderful. Mayyim Hayyim is trying to open the experience to more people. Good luck to them!

I studied Judaism and was active in a Eitz Chayim synagogue, (Cambridge MA,) for over 3 years. My Rabbi, Liza Stern arranged for a Beit Din (at which she was not present), but her husband, the Rabbi Stern with a few members of EC were present in the Beit Din, it accepted me. This Beit Din was done in one of the rooms in Mayyim Hayyim, that ambiance gave me more self-confidence in my Jewish beliefs. It seemed more talking in a social meeting than taking a test. Ritual immersion is an ancient part of Jewish tradition, highlighted in the Torah, when the Kohen went into the Holy place of the Tabernacle, when Kings asked for healing, and so on. At Mayyim Hayyim, I am welcome to immerse to commemorate a wide variety of transitions and occasions. The mikveh pool, in Mayyim Hayyim, recalls the watery state that each of us knew before we were born; It goes with that idea, so I always find a mikveh pool clean, warm, as my mother had me for 9 months, giving that kind of nourishment I need to go forward in my Jewish journey.
