Kol Banot - A Mother Daughter Bat Mitzvah Journey

Kol Banot (meaning both "Voices of /All Girls"), is an opportunity for mothers and daughters to come together as they approach their Bat Mitzvah and learn about this important and beautiful transition in our lives. This program is for 6th grade girls and their mothers.

The time, whether in or before your Bat Mitzvah year, can be a very special bonding and growing opportunity and we hope this new year-long mother/daughter program will enhance the moments and milestones for you both. 

Though this experience is made to launch us into the Bat Mitzvah year, it will NOT be focused on the service or ceremony of the Bat Mitzvah, rather the growing up as a Jewish woman and a strong female in today’s world! 

Together we will tackle questions of what is a Bat Mitzvah year? Where does our family come from? What are some family stories that have been handed down from generation to generation? What are the things we value as a family? What qualities would I want her to have as a woman growing up in this world? And much more… We hope that this will be a space for daughters and mothers to grow, ask questions and create community in a time of significance. 

The evenings will be hosted in your homes and if you are able to host one of the program sessions, please update the Google doc that will be sent after everyone finishes signing up. 

This program will be co-led by program director and teacher, Rabbi Rebecca Schatz and Maia Tchetchik Sharir, a certified group facilitator, a mother and the dreamer of this program, and is co-sponsored by Wornick and Peninsula Sinai Congregation. 

The cost of the program is $65 for each mother - daughter pair, to cover supplies. This does not cover the camping trip (if you will decide to join).
