Finding Her Right Place in the Synagogue: The Rite of Adult Bat Mitzvah

By Lisa D. Grant

Wayne State University Press, 2007

How can we understand the adult bat-mitzvah phenomenon in the context of ritual innovation and change? What are the elements of this ritual? Why is it so meaningful for the participants? What impact are the women 'graduates' of adult bat-mitzvah programs having on ritual life and practice in their synagogues? What are the implications of these changes for Jewish life in America? This chapter addresses these questions by building on the existing literature and adding new voices to the stories of women who choose this path of Jewish learning and observance.
