The Great Bat Mitzvah Makeover

Yes, we realize you, dear reader, are probably not a pre-teen. But we decided to tackle the issue of bat mitzvahs anyway because we have a problem on our hands. For too many Jewish girls, the bat mitzvah is no longer considered a meaningful rite-of-passage that connects them to their Judaism, but rather a theatrical event to endure. It’s time to change that. Whether you’re a mom, an aunt, a grandma, a sister, or just care about girls, we hope you enjoy our exploration of the topic and challenge you to send us ideas of your own on how to recapture the meaning of the bat mitzvah experience.
