Not long ago, I heard a friend remind herself to make an appointment at Mayyim Hayyim before the Jewish New Year began. I paused for a moment, imagining people all over Greater Boston and beyond having that same conversation, picking up the phone, and finding a time to immerse at this mikveh (Jewish ritual bath) in the days before Rosh Hashanah.
Thanks to the incredible efforts of founding director Aliza Kline, current director Carrie Bornstein, longtime community activist, trauma specialist, and mikveh guide extraordinaire Janet Yassen, and Mikveh Center Director Leah Hart Tennen, survivors of domestic abuse and sexual assault are among those who can turn to Mayyim Hayyim for rituals and mikveh ceremonies that address their needs and feel relevant to their lives.
