Batmitzvahs

Sandton Shul – United Hebrew Schools (UHS) BATMITZVAH Program

The Sandton Shul Batmitzvah program, in conjunction with the UHS is a program designed to give girls of Batmitzvah age, a better understanding of Judaism and what it means to become Batmitzvah.

The Program
Beginning in January, the girls have a two hour lesson, on Sunday mornings from 10:30am to 12:30pm. During these lessons, they learn about different aspects of becoming Batmitzvah, through a UHS developed curriculum as well as fun hands-on activities.

The lessons culminate in a ceremony in September, where the girls have the opportunity to show their family and friends what they have learned over the past few months, and teach them about a facet of Judaism.

Each girl receives a certificate from the BHH Sandton Shul and UHS, and have a year of experiences that they will never forget.
