“We have real serious learning going on,” Rivka Marga says. “We want to empower Jewish women. That means giving them the tools to continue learning, which become theirs to access whenever they want and wherever they are. It might get more complicated to continue learning as their lives get busy, but that connection to the Torah stays forever.”


Our Fall semester is starting in less then a week. ✨

Batya D. an alumni shared, “I learned at Mayanot for a full year, and then returned for the 5-week summer session.

🌞✨ A Season of Unforgettable Moments at Mayanot 🌺🌊

📚💖 As the summer program comes to an end we can't help but reflect on the incredible journey we've shared together at ! It's been a season filled with laughter, learning, and unforgettable memories that will forever hold a special place in our hearts. 🌅✨

From thought-provoking lectures that sparked new perspectives, to lively discussions that nurtured bonds of friendship, we've embraced the spirit of growth and exploration as a community. 🌳📚 Each day at Mayanot brought us closer to our heritage, deepening our connection to Judaism in profound ways.

Whether it was travelling through Israel or within the cozy corners of our study rooms, the magic at Mayanot illuminated our souls with knowledge and inspiration. 🌍 📖 Let's cherish the moments of laughter shared during breaks, the joyous songs that echoed through the halls, and the warm embrace of newfound friendships.

Just a reminder from Jerusalem.

“You see, every human being has a soul, a divine spark that burns inside them. Sometimes a person moves away from their inner light - it might even seem that the light of their soul has been snuffed out. But the soul is like a pilot light - it never goes out completely. All it needs is for someone to fan the embers with love, until their spiritual fire burns bright again.” - as given over by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson

The Mayanot women's program went to visit Mikvah Nava yesterday. It's named for Nava Appelbaum and the women were able to meet her mother and hear about her. It was incredibly beautiful and special experience. Have you ever seen a mikvah in person, would you like to visit one?

For those interested in learning more about what a Mikvah is and it’s purpose, below is an excerpt from Rivka Slonim’s article on

The primary uses of mikvah today are delineated in Jewish law and date back to the dawn of Jewish history. They cover many elements of Jewish life.The concept of mikvah is rooted in the spiritual.
Immersion in a mikvah signals a change in status—more correctly, an elevation in status. Its unparalleled function lies in its power of transformation, its ability to effect metamorphosis.
In the beginning, there was only water. A miraculous compound, it is the primary source and vivifying factor of all sustenance and, by extension, all life as we know it. But Judaism teaches it is more. For these very same attributes—water as source and sustaining energy—are mirrored in the spiritual. Water has the power to purify: to restore and replenish life to our essential, spiritual selves.


Can you guess where the women are?


Are you curious what Mayanot has been up to?

What an amazing first few days on the Summer program, with our first day orientation, everyone settling in and our incredible hike to Sataf. We are really enjoying getting to meet everyone. If you love following along with us, send us a heart! Can’t wait for Shabbos! 👍👏🎉
