Create a unique and personalized B'Mitzvah

 

BAR & BAT MITZVAHS

 

In this rapidly evolving world, it is important to create ceremonies that reflect our diverse and ever-changing identities. Many people are looking for new ways to mark important moments in life with rituals that fit their way of life and that of their multi-cultural families. Some of us grew up with family traditions, that may no longer speak to us or leave us little room for creativity. Some of us may have grown up without any family traditions at all. How then, can you create a meaningful Bar or Bat Mitzvah for your teenager? How can you and your family connect to this ancient Rite of Passage?

 

Creating a Bar or Bat Mitzvah ceremony is an intimate process.

 

It often involves exploring ancient rituals and giving them new meaning. In a time, where people from diverse cultures and religions come together and create a family together it is important to create new and revitalized rituals that reflect our multicultural identities.

 

Most of us no longer belong to only one group, but to many different groups. We have a so-called multicultural identity. Traditional family constellations are no longer taken for granted and the need for new and renewed rituals is growing. Creating these kinds of new-time rituals is fun and rewarding.

 

A Bar or Bat Mitzvah is a Rite of Passage, marking the transition from childhood to adulthood. It is a moment of reflection and seeking answers to important questions. Your child is standing on the threshold of puberty and a new phase in life is about to start. This can be a challenging time.

 

In Judaism we are fortunate to have a ritual that marks this time in the life of a child transitioning into a young adult. What does it mean to be Jewish? What does it mean to become the daughter or son of the mitzvah? What is a mitzvah and what does that mean to me? It is my privilege to explore these questions with you and your teenagers. Together we will design a personalized ceremony that is meaningful for you and your family.  

 

The Bar/Bat Mitzvah training involves between 10-20 online lessons to prepare for the Big Day. Costs €50 per lesson.

 

The costs of the ceremony will be discussed and agreed upon with each individual family.
