“The Bat Mitzvah program at The City Congregation is truly unique, and provided our daughter with the opportunity to research both sides of her family – their history, values and beliefs, and through this, identify a meaningful role model. She also got to delve deeply into her passion for writing through creating two short stories that addressed Jewish identity and place.
It is the incredible mentorship component that makes the process truly special. Our wonderful mentor has become a true family friend, and supported our daughter through her kindness, compassion and warmth.
The bat mitzvah service itself was a joyous occasion – a true reflection of our families’ values. It was a platform for our daughter to share what being a Humanistic Jew means to her.
We are so grateful to have found the perfect environment in which she could grow, reflect on her roots, take on new challenges, and shine.” – Izzy’s Parents
