A Bat Mitzvah is an opportunity for a girl to prepare for her entry into Jewish adulthood by exploring what it means to be a Jewish woman. The aim of the MaTaN Bat Mitzvah program, Jewish Women Through the Ages, is to examine how Jewish women form a chain across the generations. We enable the Bat Mitzvah to serve as a bridge connecting the young girl to Jewish continuity.

The program consists of ten two-hour sessions on Wednesday nights, during which mothers and daughters study sources together about Jewish women throughout history. These historical figures were selected because they embody positive attributes and values from which the girls can learn.
