Message from the Director:

Dear Parents,

We are thrilled to announce the launching of a new and exciting club, a first for Putnam: The Bat Mitzvah Club! BMC was designed especially for Jewish girls, approaching their Bat Mitzvah birthday.

Through our involvement with the Jewish community, we have noticed that girls of this age manifest heightened interest, curiosity, and energy toward discovering more about themselves and the world around them. The Bat Mitzvah Club's program serves to challenge and stimulate its members, as they undergo profound physical, emotional, and intellectual changes.

Reaching beyond the common conception of a Bat Mitzvah as simply a Bar Mitzvah for girls, the club serves as a forum for discussion and discovery of the true meaning of Bat Mitzvah. It encourages the girls to learn more about this unique and pivotal time in their lives, to gain new perspectives on their positions as females, as adults, and as Jews. Members will enjoy a combination of learning and fun, through monthly meetings, special programs, activities, projects, and involvement in the Jewish community.

As they share interests, goals, and experiences, club members will develop a sense of unity and friendship with other Jewish girls their age. They will learn about the positive contributions they can make to themselves, their families, and the Jewish community at large. These girls will face the future as informed, committed and confident Jewish women, who are proud of their unique identities. Aside from continuing a vibrant heritage from the past, they will form a new generation of leaders and active participants in the Jewish community. The Bat Mitzvah Club truly represents a worthwhile investment of your daughter's extracurricular time.
