Mikveh Attendant Training Program
New Course Starting Sunday, March 3rd, 2024, 19:00-22:00 (Israel time)
The Eden Center ‘s Mikveh Attendant Training Program combines knowledge of the halakha, understanding of an attendant’s role, and practical guidance with a broad view of the emotional, women’s health and crisis issues that can come to light at the mikveh. The training gives attendants tools to identify and sensitively approach issues such as domestic violence, postpartum depression, infertility and miscarriage, disability, mental health, and other personal issues. In addition, the program emphasizes sensitivity and inclusion; attendants learn how to “give space” and recognize the different needs of the range of women who use the mikveh to improve the mikveh experience.
The course is 16 weeks. It is currently offered online.
The program has certification from the Israeli Ministry of Religious Affairs, and all participants will receive a certificate of graduation approved by the Ministry.
