Mayyim Hayyim is a mikveh - a ritual bath - and much more. We hope you'll find our website to be full of fascinating information, insights, and surprises. We look forward to hearing from you.
We are delighted to present our latest short video documentary about the process of choosing Judaism and how we at Mayyim Hayyim provide a thoughtful and warm welcome to new Jews and their families.
Thank you to Temple Hillel B’nai Torah for the use of their space to film portions of this video. Forbes Graham and his family are members of Temple Hillel B'nai Torah led by Rabbi Barbara Penzner.
