The idea of a Bat Mitzvah a hundred years ago was unheard of. Sally Gottesman viewed the first Bnot Mitzvah as pioneers in an exciting journey that still continues today. She wonders, however, how to help the Bat Mitzvah remain as a “stepping stone” to more active involvement in the Jewish community. Gottesman has co-founded an organization called Moving Traditions in which she hopes to do just that.
We at Areyvut fully support this goal to encourage more involvement in the Jewish community. Our Bnai Mitzvah projects serve as a way to make the Bar and Bat Mitzvah experience one in which the Bnai Mitzvah recognize their responsibility to the Jewish community and help them to become involved. We look forward to working with you in the future.
