Beneath the Surface provides an opportunity to enhance families’ bat mitzvah experience by enabling mothers and daughters to engage with one another with conversation, art, crafts, and texts in a nurturing and safe environment with opportunities for intimate, creative expression.
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.
