What is special about the BMC program?

The Bat Mitzva Club is a one of a kind experience for girls ages 11-13, regardless of synagogue affiliation to come together once a week to celebrate what is means to become a Bat Mitzvah. Club activities include; interactive games, discussions, arts and crafts, community projects, and field trips.

We will also work with each girl individually and prepare her for her personal Bat Mitzvah ceremony.


Frequent Q&A

 

What's the point of a Bat Mitzvah anyway?
Are you all caught up with the theme, the clothing and all the party favors but clueless about the meaning?? Do you think a Bat Mitzvah ends or begins with your party? Join the Bat Mitzvah club and find out. Here girls learn about Judaism, meet other Jewish girls the same age and have loads of fun!

Will i fit in?
If you like activities, friends, food and conversation, you'll definately fit right in!

Are there any special outings or trips?
We have special trips and get together few times a year, together with all the girls from the other JRCC bracnhes Bat Mitzva Clubs! Chanukah Limo-hop!, great Shabbaton sleep-over, End-of-the unique gala dinner - and more! 

Share ideas, friendship and fun!

The Bat Mitzvah club shows girls why a Bat Mitzvah is much more than a party. Learn what it really means to be a Bat Mitzvah in the modern world. Get to know your Jewish self through art, creative writing and community outreach. Discuss hot topics. Share you interests, goals, hopes and dreams. Record your thoughts and ideas in your very own club journal. Express yourself!

 

Give yourself a Bat Mitzvah gift
Join the Bat Mitzvah club and give yourself the best gifts of all: Self confidence, Jewish pride, and lasting friendships. These are the Bat Mitzvah gifts that last a lifetime. Because a Bat Mitzvah is not really about the party it's about you. 

Will there be a formal celebration for my Bat Mitzva?

On the day of your Bat Mitzva we will get together for a special, meaningful celebration with your family and friends. In addition, the club will round off the year with a beautiful dinner and presentation, in which all of our students will have a chance to speak, and invite family and friends.
