Toward a Meaningful Bat Mitzvah

Toward a Meaningful Bat Mitzvah book by Nancy Wolfson-Moche

“Toward a Meaningful Bat Mitzvah” is a 48-page booklet published by Targum Shlishi and now available online in PDF form on the publisher’s website.

“The goal of this booklet is to share with the Jewish community-at-large our family’s solution in creating a bat mitzvah that allowed our daughter to participate fully in a traditional ritual service while at the same time keeping within the broad parameters of the branch of traditional Judaism that our family affiliates with,” states Aryeh Rubin in the preface. “Our flexible approach also allowed the non-participating community to share in our celebration.”

Edited by Nancy Wolfson-Moche, the publication includes articles by Blu Greenberg, Rabbi Yitz Greenberg, and Rabbi Saul J. Berman, along with checklists and resources which can serve the full spectrum of religious practice.

Learning to Say "We": Writing Identity

In this immersion, we will reflect and expand on our personal experiences of identity, using writing exercises and in-depth discussions to think about, challenge, discover, explore, and experiment with different ways to identify ourselves, to consider how those ways connect us to and separate us from others, and how they represent and misrepresent aspects of who we are.

Four sessions, starting June 15th
