The mikveh is just one element in the rich ecosystem that makes up the intimate life of couples and families. The Eden Center strives to go outside the waters of the mikveh to provide information and education that can enhance couples’ connections to their health and to each other. Our programs provide deeper halakhic knowledge while guiding women and couples through every stage of married life, from the beginning of marriage (and even before) to parenting to perimenopause.
