Bat Mitzvah girls 300x186 - Bat Mitzvah Program

The year-long Bat Mitzvah program, led by Tali Koth, enriches the transition of our community’s young women through their journey into Jewish adulthood.

St Kilda Shule’s Bat Mitzvah program focusses on educating Bat Mitzvah girls in fun, engaging and creative ways, because the most meaningful learning takes place when girls are engaged and stimulated.

Tali has developed an excellent reputation as a leading educator. The program culminates in the Bat Mitzvah ceremony in our beautiful Shule surrounded by family and friends. A sample of this year’s ceremony can be seen here.

Many girls also take the opportunity to give a D’var Torah in Shule from the pulpit on a Friday night or Shabbat morning.
