I have been honored to be a part of so many people’s transitions. There was the couple who came to immerse together to mark their 9th month of pregnancy and to pray for a healthy delivery. And then there was the couple who came together to mourn a miscarriage. How can I forget the joyous young woman who completed her conversion at Mayyim Hayyim and then immediately wed her fiancé in our celebration space? Every single time I guide at Mayyim Hayyim I arrive full of excitement and a little nervousness. I never know what the day will hold, yet I’m prepared to give each immersee what he or she needs. I walk part of a journey with them and I give them the space they need to just be.
