The Eden Center’s training programs give professionals the knowledge and tools to support Jewish women and couples as they learn to observe the laws of niddah and mikveh. We believe that professional training must incorporate information about intimacy, abuse, and physical and mental health, as well as halacha, so that professionals can understand and offer holistic support.

The Eden Center aims to teach about mikveh and taharat hamishpacha, to raise discussions about intimacy and encourage women to engage with these mitzvot. We do this in a variety of ways, including running training courses and community education. We believe in teaching anyone who wants to learn. As such, our trainings are given in various organizational and private settings to women with divergent backgrounds in Israel and abroad. We do not endorse any organization or individuals who participate in our programs, but teach a wide audience in a range of locations out of the commitment to increase Torah study and deepen the love of the mitzvot associated with observing the laws of niddah and immersion in the mikveh.

Thank you for giving us tools to help us make immersion a meaningful experience, while being able to help women in the community. Thank you for broadening our ability to ask, and for allowing us to be excited and experience what we learned in every context—at work, at home, in our daily interactions – with real joy. Thank you for thinking of every detail, for giving us so much, and more than anything – for caring, and showing us how to care!
