Since the Bat-Mitzvah celebration is not founded in ancient tradition, much confusion surrounds it. In this volume, Rabbis and Rabbaniyot, male and female educators, come together to deal with the milestone of the Bat-Mitzvah from a halakhic, philosophical and educational perspective. Elements that are paid special attention are the staging of the event, halakhic questions, learning material for the girl who is entering Bat-Mitzvah, ideas for drashot, and a survey of preparatory programs for the upcoming celebration, and more.
Jewish tradition includes no long-standing practices for celebrating the bat mitzvah event. In Traditions and Celebrations for the Bat Mitzvah, rabbis and experienced educators, learned women and men, consider the occasion of bat mitzvah from a variety of perspectives – halakhic, philosophical, pedagogical and personal. These essays offer reflections on the nature and form of the event itself, halakhic responsa, source materials for study in preparation for the acceptance of mitzvot, descriptions of existing bat mitzvah preparatory programs, and more.
