Mayyim Hayyim Living Waters Community Mikveh and Education
October 14, 2009
My experience volunteering at Mayyim Hayyim has been a transformationalexperience in my life. Way back, before construction was even completed at Mayyim Hayyim, I joined a number of other women studying to be in the first cohort of Mikveh Guides. The experience of bonding with this incredible group of women was for me, a business woman, inspirational. When it was time for Mayyim Hayyim to open and actually begin receiving visitors to immerse there was truly a thrill in my heart. Mayyim Hayyim, and the devoted women and men who serve there, have not only successfully continued an ancient tradition but also given the Jews in our Greater Boston community an opportunity to develop ways to give new meaning to an old tradition, thus revitalizing the concept of using living water for spiritual cleansing and healing. Moreover, the art gallery and meeting space has allowed the Education Center to bring Jews together in a beautiful, new venue.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Volunteering as a mikveh guide, bringing friends and family into the mikveh experience and immersing myself.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
Helping at conversions.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Amazingly kind and considerate.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Hire full timers to answer the phone - I hate voice mail! The rest seems to be working itself out pretty well and I am proud of my affiliation with it.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
About every month
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Former volunteer & I was a mikveh guide from the time Mayyim Hayyim opened until last year, when I had to take a leave of absence for personal reasons. I will return when I can.
