For parents who want to think differently about b’nai mitzvah
The folks from Moving Traditions bring you @13, a six-episode podcast series that is pitch-perfect for parents and pre-teens going through the sometimes confusing, likely emotional, and certainly triumphant process of planning and becoming a Bat or Bar Mitzvah. We hear from rabbis, authors, comedians, psychologists, parents, and teens about the ancient roots and modern realities of this Jewish rite of passage. And we consider how to infuse meaning and connection into the process of becoming and parenting a teen. Listen now on iTunes or anywhere fine podcasts are served!
