02/14/2016 - New Negba Bat Mitzvah Program for Girls At-Risk

Negba has launched an intensive Bat Mitzvah Project over the course of four months to provide a deeper experience for 11-year old girls who will mark their Bat Mitzvah this year. The girls meet every other week for special theme-based activities centered on Biblical female figures such as Sarah, Rachel and Hanna. Most recently, they explored the topic of charity and social responsibility as embodied by Ruth, culminating in the preparation of baked goods which they distributed to patients and their families at the Soroka Hospital in Beersheva.

“I enjoyed meeting new girls also celebrating their Bat Mitzvah this year,” said Orly, 11. “I liked baking the cookies and helping people.” Yuval, also 11, was very excited about the project. “The crafts projects were fun, and I learned a lot about the women in the Torah.”

The project culminated in a festive Bat Mitzvah celebration held with the girls and their families last week. The project has created deeper relationships between the girls, as they anticipate reaching this important milestone together. Negba wishes them much Mazal Tov as they approach this new stage in Jewish life.
