Restorying Jewish Lives Post Adult Bat Mitzvah

By Lisa D. Grant

Journal of Jewish Education, September 1, 2003

The author reports results of a qualitative study of five Jewish women who had adult bat mitzvah ceremonies, conducted years after the ceremonies, in order to study the long-term impacts of adult bat mitzvahs. The author discusses the initial motivations and impacts of the ceremonies, later reflections and "restorying", the narrative process of weaving an experience into life and memory.
