"When we connect in this way, we connect from deep within, on a soul level. The outside world can not disturb that connection. We are thus free to fulfill our mission and purpose!"

Sara Fenton

Sara is an educator,  tour guide, writer, editor and singer-song-writer. One of her thrills is teaching Torah in the land of Israel, where Torah comes alive.

“Having truly searched for my personal truth, I have discovered that Torah is an experiential lens through which the power of our own souls, and the palpable presence of G-d can be glimpsed. Working with women, I am consistently aspiring to formulate the pearls of Torah wisdom into uniquely feminine, relatable and applicable teachings.”

Originally from Philadelphia, Sara studied world religions at McGill University, and after making aliya, continued her Jewish Education Studies at colleges in Jerusalem and Haifa.

Sara lives in Tsfat with her family, where she embarks on outdoor trips, healthy cooking and sourdough challah.

Adina Rosen

Adina is one of the founders of Maayan Chayim and the Tsfat Mikveh project.

Being one of the Women of the Waters keeps me in the consciousness of renewal. It is a gift to be part of the unfolding of the women of Israel- the daughters of the King, in real time. It means being connected to the depths of the beauty of who we are, the feminine, the indwelling presence of G-d.

Adina is originally from Oberland Park, Kansas. After studying Environmental Economics, she embarked on world travel that reflected and facilitated her own internal spiritual journey. Adina was a member of the Peace Corps in the Philippines, later spending time in Berkley, LA, New York and India. It was in the midst of a vow of silence that Adina found herself with a chalk-board on the doorstep of an observant family on a hilltop in Israel. She was finally home.

Adina lives in Tsfat with her husband, children and grandchildren. She enjoys executing secret Chessed missions, and articulating gratitude to Hashem with her son, as she tucks him into bed.
