I have reached Bat Mitzvah –how will I meet the challenges of this new stage in my life? As a young girl reaches the age of Bat Mitzvah, she naturally begins to question and explore her evolving relationship with the mitzvot. What does the fulfillment of mitzvot mean to her? How do the commandments help build her inner self? In this course, we will address questions like these through the study of fundamental Jewish principles, such as the relationship between the individual and God, and the relationship betweenthe individual and community. We will study specific mitzvot relating to the relationships between children and parents; mitzvot pertaining to family members; and mitzvot between friends. The course will involve text study, using sources from Tanakh, Mishnah, Midrash and Hasidut.

Sessions will include:

• Guided, in-depth mother& daughter chavruta study

• One-on-one discussions applying our learning to our personal daily lives.

• Group discussions

• Creative activity through music, writing, art and movement.

The mother-daughter relationship is an essential part of preparing teenage girls for keeping the mitzvoth and their formative world. We will focus on seven important mitzvoth and learn how they bring us closer to Hashem, to parents, friends and the community at large. Each class consists of three parts –introduction of the topic and raising pertinent questions; source-based mother & daughter chevruta learning and discussion; creative group discussion and activity (writing, drama, etc.).

Topics include:

  • קידוש החודש: Sanctity of time in religious life, and role of rabbis in determining Halacha.
  • ונשמרתם מאוד לנפשותיכם: Care of our bodies, the value of maintaining good health, Halachic attitude to piercing, tattoos, etc..
  • Our religious responsibilities toward others (respect for our parents, love others as we love ourselves, Kiddush Hashem and Chillul Hashem)

A good level of Hebrew is required as well as an interest in textual study.
