Congregation Ahavas Achim invites sixth-grade girls and their mothers to participate in a very special learning opportunity during their bat mitzvah year. The Matan Bat Mitzvah Program is popular all over the world, and thousands of mothers and daughters have enjoyed the learning, which is themed “Jewish Women Through the Ages.”

The program focuses on Jewish role models, from the Imahot through modern-day heroines. At each meeting, the learning session is accompanied by an experiential activity such as music, theater, art and guided imagery. Each girl is encouraged to prepare a special project for her bat mitzvah on the subject, “Aishet Chayil,” selecting a woman from Tanach or history, a family member or any other inspiring woman.

The Matan Program will be facilitated by Rebbetzin Gila Miodownik. It will meet in the Ahavas Achim Social Hall on Tuesday nights, from September 17 through December 3 (with breaks for the chagim).

Registration for this program is $100 per mother/daughter team to cover the cost of supplies and materials. Scholarships are available. A minimum of five mother/daughter pairs is required in order to run this program.
