Review for Mayyim Hayyim Living Waters Community Mikveh And Education, Newton, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

An extraordinary place. Mayyim Hayyim is a place where transformation occurs. I was present when my soon-to-be daughter-in-law immersed in the water, her final step to become a Jew. Her non-Jewish parents were present as was I and my husband and our son. Her parents felt the emotion of having their daughter leave them in a very real way, yet be welcomed to a new life in a loving and beautiful place in a most spiritual way. Mayyim Hayyim is a gift to our community.

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

meeting and working with Jews from all denominations, liberal, conservative and orthodox.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

caring, loving, totally committed.

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

create an endowment that would sustain itself without having to spend so much energy and time fund raising. Focus could be fully targeted on programming.

Ways to make it better...

I had time to volunteer more at Mayyim Hayyim.

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

raising the necessary funds to support our programs and financial obligations.

One thing I'd also say is that...

the devoted staff and volunteers do an amazing job creating program and maintaining the atmosphere and spirit of Mayyim Hayyim.
