Mikveh Salon

An open, honest, safe space to discuss mikveh and niddah: 

*Are you curious about what happens at the mikveh? 
*Are you looking for a safe space to talk about your mikveh practice? 
*Do you avoid going to the mikveh at all costs? 
*Do you grapple with what it means to you to go to the mikveh on a monthly basis?

Contact us to host or join a space to share stories, rituals, and reflections on an experience not oft discussed communally. 
The conversation will be facilitated by Dina Brawer, rabbinical student at  Yeshivat Maharat and Emily Simon a GP specializing in women's health.
