Celebration and Negotiation: Working with Separated, Divorced, and Remarried Families Approaching Bar/Bat Mitzvah Celebrations

By Sally Weber, Ann Hartman, Stewart Vogel

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1994

The synagogue, in cooperation with Jewish family service agencies, can provide families with workable models for the complicated decision-making process that they must undergo as they approach their children's Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebrations. In the program described in this article, such difficult issues as the wording of invitations and synagogue publicity, who has to attend, finances, whether to hold separate celebrations, and assigning synagogue honors were addressed in workshops co facilitated by a rabbi and social worker.
