The Bat Mitzvah Club, is a program that prepares girls between 11 and 13 years old for their Bat Mitzvah.

This year the program will consist of 14 gatherings, 8 programmes with their mothers in the evening, a Shabbaton, a Sukkah Party and a graduation.

The girls will also take part of the Yachad-Chessed programme by being visiting an isolated person for a year.

During our meetings , we will cross the milestones on Jewish History while discovering important female figures in our history. We will also celebrate the Jewish holidays while focusing more extensively on “Jewish thoughts and values” with a first initiation to spirituality, duality between body and soul, and our personal relationship with G-d . We will also address issues such as fashion, respect for parents , boys and girls relationship … etc. .

The programs called ” Mummy and Me ” will take place in the evenings and will allow closeness between mothers and daughters through Judaism, and programmes on Shabbat morning will take place from 11:00 to 13:30 (including lunch) at the European Synagogue and will allow the girls to familiarize themselves with prayers and orientation in Synagogue. All those gatherings are both, informative and lots of fun for all.

We also have a trip to Israel (optional) which is organized by Morasha which will take place in February, but more information will come soon.

The cost of the program is 390 euro to be paid at EJCC.

Looking forward to hearing from you
