Bat Mitzvah

A Jewish girl’s Bat Mitzvah is celebrated when she reaches the age of 12 and starts her journey as a young woman.

A Bat Mitzvah is the moment when a Jewish girl becomes a woman. In a sense it is an almost literal transition from being a caterpillar to becoming a glorious butterfly. It is cause for great celebration and immense gratitude to Hashem.

Elwood Shule is developing a wonderful and unique Bat Mitzvah program in 2015 for young girls reaching the age of 12. To find out more about our Bat Mitzvah program, please contact the Shule Office to discuss further, 9531 1547.
