Traditional & Contemporary
Uses for the Mikvah

Immersion can be a powerful tool in our modern search for meaning and enhanced spiritual growth. Along with traditional uses such as niddah, conversion, and purification, at MACoM, we offer rituals for dozens of transitions that might be encountered in one’s life.  If you would like to immerse with a special ritual at MACoM but don’t see one in the list below that resonates with you, please let us know and we will work to create one that speaks to your circumstances:
