The Eden Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the mikveh experience for all women. We focus on enabling a personal and meaningful experience, providing support and resources for crisis and lifecycle moments and transforming the mikveh into a vehicle to promote women’s mental and physical health, intimacy and well-being. The Eden Center is working to create a change of consciousness in Israel and in the Jewish discourse regarding the place of mikvah, enabling the mikvah to be a positive space for building a feminine Jewish identity, and advancing tolerance and inclusiveness.
The Eden Center, founded in 2010 by a group of Orthodox women, is based in Jerusalem and active in communities across the Jewish world. We educate, empower and advocate for the needs and challenges of couples today by training community leaders such as mikveh attendants, health professionals, hatan and kallah teachers, rabbis and rabbi’s wives, teaching and inspiring women who immerse and the community-at-large and creating choices for women to define their own experience.
