The Mikvah Educational Experience
Professional Jewish educators affiliated with the Toronto Community Mikvah have developed an educational experience to introduce students in our congregations and in Jewish day schools to the Mikvah.
The experience, which takes place at the Mikvah, consists of several parts:
Exploration of Jewish rituals through a survey
Discussion of the symbolism on the walls of the Mikvah
Analysis of reasons to go to the Mikvah through a card game
Immersion in the Mikvah in bathing suits or symbolic immersion by
standing on the top step of the Mikvah
It is directed towards two groups: pre-B’nei Mitzvah students or pre-Confirmation students. It is also appropriate for youth groups, Sisterhoods and adult B’nei Mitzvah classes.
Participating programs are strongly encouraged to have the Rabbi of the congregation or the head of the school to join the group for this experience.
Educational bookings should be made by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. The names of all participants must be received prior to the date of the program.
There is a $36 nominal fee for each group.
