Jewish tradition includes no long-standing practices for celebrating the bat mitzvah event. In this book, rabbis and experienced educators, learned women and men, consider the occasion of bat mitzvah from a variety of perspectives - halakhic, philosophical, pedagogical and personal. These essays offer reflections on the nature and form of the event itself, halakhic responsa, source materials for study in preparation for the acceptance of mitzvoth, descriptions of existing bat mitvah preparatory programs, and more.
