Bat Mitzvah Comes of Age

Presented by the National Museum of American Jewish History and Moving Traditions, this exhibition shows how bat mitzvah evolved from a radical innovation into a nearly universal American tradition. A fascinating story of how individuals shape and change ritual, Bat Mitzvah Comes of Age offers a unique lens into the dynamism of Jewish life.

Bat Mitzvah Comes of Age is designed for easy travel and installation in small galleries, JCCs, and synagogues. To inquire about bringing the exhibition to your community, please contact Assistant Registrar Sasha Makuka.

Generous support for Bat Mitzvah Comes of Age is provided by The Streisand Foundation.
