Last Wednesday, in Kiryat Netifim, Nishmat celebrated the graduation of the first class of mikveh attendants in our National Mikvah Attendant Training Program.
Last year, Nishmat won the Ministry of Religious Services' tender to train attendants who operate mikvaot run by Israel's religious councils. Over the next two years, the program aims to provide training to the approximately 850 mikveh attendants in Israel, giving them the tools to provide better service to women and reduce tensions between the religious and secular.
The pilot course was held in the Shomron Regional Council.
The ambitious training program is directed by Yoetzet Halacha Rotem Glasser and includes enrichment in relevant areas including domestic violence, workshops in interpersonal skills, as well as a chance to view the mikveh experience through the lenses of a secular bride.
The first course won high accolades from participants and Religious Council. We wish Rotem every success.
