My favorite blog: The Mikveh Lady has Left the Building



In case you didn’t know, I am the founder and board president of a 21st century incarnation of mikveh — the ancient Jewish practice of immersion.

The Mayyim Hayyim blog is one my pleasures and I occasionally contribute to it. This is what I just posted there. I hope you don’t mind the pitch; it’s that time of year, too.

I love this blog.

I love the diversity of topics and the diversity of voices.

I love the title. “The Mikveh Lady has Left the Building,” which means that Jewish lie is changing. And where there is change there is life.

A blog is just a blog, but this blog is proof positive that Jewish life in America is vital, creative, and inspiring. And the fact that we’ve had 16,622 views confirms the fact that you think so, too.

Since you are reading these words, I have to assume that you want to make sure that Mayyim Hayyim can keep on blogging and, by the way, opening the door wide to Jewish ritual, meaning, and community for all Jews, for people becoming Jewish, and for their families and friends. All this for folks in the Boston area and way, way beyond — including Raleigh, NC and Jerusalem, to name just a few places we’re helping change happen.

All this costs money.

So do something. Make a donation. Right now. Click here.

$18, $180, $1800. Whatever.

2011 is coming to an end, so go out on a mitzvah.

The gates are closing.

And by the way, I love you, too.
