Announcing the glorious return of the Babel’s Batmitzvah course! Bar/Bat Mitzvah is the Jewish coming-of-age ceremony, which usually takes place when a child is 13 but can be done at any age. It involves studying Jewish history and theology, learning to read Hebrew, taking part in research and discussions, writing your own response to a biblical text; and ends in a ceremony at synagogue, with family and friends coming together to celebrate your learning.
Our teacher Lev says:
This is a course for adults who did not have a bar/bat mitzvah, didn’t like theirs, or did it in the wrong name/gender. Through this course, you will explore Judaism, including festivals, rituals, texts and history. You will learn to read from the Torah and talk about it, culminating in a ceremony at the end of two terms. This is your chance to explore Judaism on your terms, with no preconditions about beliefs, background or practice.
