 Dear future club member,

            Introducing the Bat Mitzvah Club – the “club for girls, starring girls, run by girls!” When a Jewish girl turns twelve, she undergoes a profound change. It may not be easy to see, but she is joining millions of Jewish girls in beginning the journey towards womanhood. Many people think a Bat Mitzvah is just a Bar Mitzvah for girls. No way! A Jewish girl possesses a unique identity, which she shares with all Jewish women from around the globe and throughout 3,000 years of history. Becoming Bat Mitzvah means more than a beautiful party. It’s the beginning of a lifelong process of doing more -- more Jewish learning, more feeling, more thinking, and more being you.

            The Bat Mitzvah Club brings together girls just like you and helps Bat Mitzvah girls of today grow into Jewish women of tomorrow. Through interesting learning and fun activities, you will make new discoveries about yourself and the meaning of Bat Mitzvah. The Bat Mitzvah Club is an organization for girls, by girls, and starring girls. You arrange the activities and schedules, and you run the meetings by holding positions such as master of ceremonies, hostess, speaker, song leader, treasurer and photographer.

            Club members meet regularly with other Bat-Mitzvah-age-girls, hear from interesting people, enjoy special trips, make crafts and projects, explore creative reading and writing, take part in discussions, and have a great time. Members also can earn club merits by reporting meaningful actions they perform. With enough club merits, you can earn prizes. You also will receive an introductory kit that contains a journal, pen, club stationery, calendar, and other helpful items.

            Joining any kind of club involves choice, but you can be sure that joining the Bat Mitzvah Club is the right choice. When you become a member, you are building a future for a Jewish tomorrow. Your personal progress and good achievements will change you and the world around you. In the Bat Mitzvah Club, you will experience ever-growing knowledge and pride in being Jewish, female, and a young adult. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Chana Heidingsfeld
