Now offered during the summer for the first time ever: Beneath the Surface creates a structured time and now, a virtual space for moms and girls to reconnect and share experiences with other families about the Bat Mitzvah process, the importance of ritual, and celebrating milestones during challenging times. Mixing live conversations with facilitators and other families and offline activities, this program will make the Bat Mitzvah experience special and meaningful in the midst of a challenging time.
This program is intended as a pre-bat mitzvah experience. Preference is given to families who are within 6-7 months of their bat mitzvah date. Non-Jewish mothers raising Jewish daughters are warmly welcomed, as are single moms, those in same-sex relationships, and all Jewish denominations.
