(IP) Whose B'nei Mitzvah Is It Anyway?

Saturday, April 9, 2022 8 Nisan 5782

3:10 PM - 4:35 PMIn person

Like any life-cycle ceremony, B’nei Mitzvah come to be about much more than the stated purpose – marking a passage of a child coming of age. What are some of the important explicit – and sometimes hidden – factors, choices, and messages? This workshop is not about logistics or expectations: it is about the meaning(s) of B'nei Mitzvah, and its power as a rite of passage for the whole family. Together we will explore the hopes and fears that inspire, inform, and complicate the preparation and planning process. How can we feel more connected to our child in this process? Our partner or ex-partner? Our family of origin? The rituals and liturgy? The community? How do we celebrate the occasion in a way that honors these connections, and our values? This frank and non-judgmental workshop is about the big questions and how they impact the concrete decisions that parents and youth are called upon to make.

Led by Deborah Eisenbach-Budner, Education Director and Laura Orgel, Child & Family Therapist.

We'll be in person.
