Beneath the Surface – Spring 2019

  • 2:30pm - 5:00pm

Explore… the special moments and rituals that bind us together as individuals and families

Learn… about Jewish rituals that help us give special meaning to our lives

Share… your hopes and dreams for each other and for your relationships

Create… your own personal ritual to celebrate this important moment together as mother and daughter

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.
