By September 14, 2008 November 15th, 2018 Bnei Mitzvah, Major Papers

The following essay about Jewish women in public service was written by Ethan Bogard, a middle schooler, enrolled in City Congregation’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah program. Students spend a year and a half researching their heritage, values and beliefs, and write on a Jewish subject of their choice, their major project; an example of this last component can be seen below. The process improves both the student’s writing and critical thinking skills, as well as his/her self confidence and overall maturity.
