Bat Mitzvah

Dvar Torah Preparation

Individual Sessions With certified Rabbi


The Dvar Torah is a speech written in English on any topic the Bat Mitzvah girl chooses, as she discusses a lesson or message from the Torah on her topic. A girl celebrates her becoming Bat Mitzvah by sharing a Dvar Torah (lit, words of Torah) with her family and friends.

The Bat Mitzvah girl will have around 4 private sessions where she will be guided through the process of choosing and researching her topic, as well as writing it. A special focus is placed on allowing the Bat Mitzvah girl to develop her speech around a topic she identifies with.

An orientation session will be scheduled with both mother/father and daughter present to plan out the Dvar Torah. The sessions will be scheduled at a mutually convenient time, beginning about 2-3 months before the Bat Mitzvah.
