Join Moving Traditions’ Rabbi Daniel Brenner in conversation with Alison Peck, screenwriter of the new movie “You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah,” coming to Netflix on Aug. 25 and starring Adam Sandler and Idina Menzel.
In this educational webinar for parents and educators of Jewish youth, we will discuss the movie, and the spiritual and ethical dilemmas that families and adolescents face when they celebrate a b-mitzvah. Topics will range from practical matters like the social pressures of being a host or a guest to the larger question of how to make contemporary meaning of this ancient rite of passage.
We’ll also hear from an expert a bit closer to the topic, a teen who will recount their experience with the unique joys and challenges that come with becoming a b-mitzvah.
You’ll receive actionable takeaways and the exclusive opportunity to join the timeless conversation about coming of age through what’s sure to be the Jewish movie of the season.+ More... - Less...
