As a Conservative Rabbi I was excited to be in on the "ground floor" of planning for a true community-wide Mikve. I had participated in Batei Din for conversion at an Orthodox Mivke in the Boston area, and I found the experience as less than satisfying and inspiring. I was in a meeting which included the certifying Rabbi Ben Zion Bergman from LA. I attended meetings with the architect and designer of the facility which promised to be a welcome and inspiring place. With the opening of the Mikve and the filling of the Borot I felt that Boston community had achieved a goal. Since that time I continue to serve on Batei Din and the impact of Mayyim Hayyim is felt on every occasion.
