Naomi Malka: Progressive Takes on Mikvah

Naomi Malka presents "Into the Deep: How progressive Jewish communities are embracing the ancient ritual of Mikvah." This session will help us reframe ancient understandings of purity in a refreshing, contemporary idiom. Come explore how Mikvah can add depth and meaning to your life in surprising ways.

On Tuesday morning, bring your questions about Mikvah to BIC and chat over coffee and a light breakfast starting at 8:30.

And on Tuesday evening, learn about what it means to be a mikvah guide, and perhaps commit to this mitzvah.
