Matan Bat Mitzvah Program

As we are all yearning to learn more about our identity and heritage as Jewish women, I wanted to let you know about an exciting class that will be taking place for mothers and their daughters. The goal of the program is to strengthen our understanding and connection to the rich historical tradition of Jewish women and to encourage each participant to take her special place in this chain of tradition. The classes are source-based, interactive, and experiential and will use a curriculum called the Matan Bat Mitzvah Program “Jewish Women through the Ages.” The Matan program is currently being run in dozens of communities throughout the world for bat-mitzvah and post-bat-mitzvah aged girls and their mothers, and has received tremendously positive feedback from its participants. The classes are geared towards participants of all learning levels.

One of the unique features of this program is that you will be attending and learning along with your daughters. It is an exciting opportunity not only for you to learn and grow but also to join this experience with that of your daughter’s growth. Each daughter must be accompanied by her mother or some other woman who will be her learning and discussion partner. Feel free to invite grandmothers, aunts, or other close female friends if you cannot attend each class.
