Eden was thrilled to host 250 participants at our first national mikveh attendant conference מדברים איתך on February 22, 2017. Held in partnership with Hadassah Hospital and Toras Hamishpacha, we brought together mikveh attendants from 32 areas all over the country (the Golan, Netanya, Hadera, and Carmiel, to Netivot, Lachish…). The atmosphere was incredible and the balaniyot learned from top medical professors, community leaders, and psychologists in 7 packed hours of learning. The program also included a facilitated platform for attendants to work in groups to express their professional challenges ( moral, practical, emotional) and share potential solutions. For many that was the highlight of the day and really empowered them to continue to develop professionally.
The balaniyot could not stop raving about the professionalism of the conference, how Eden understood and met their needs in ways that they hadn’t ever even recognized and what powerful tools Eden provided them to enhance their work. Numerous cities are now interested in our 12 week Mikveh Attendant Training course and they are all looking forward to further regional yemei iyun and the next annual conference. It was invigorating and uplifting for all involved, and an honor to work with and empower women who come into contact with so many thousands of other Jewish women in this intimate and special way.
