Welcome to the Bat Mitzvah Academy!

A spectacular 8 month program for 11 and 12 year old girls to prepare them for their Bat Mitzvah. Eye-opening topics will be explored and discussed through drama, arts, and innovative technology in a warm, social, Jewish environment. New York Hebrew's Bat Mitzvah Academy will aim to empower our girls as proud Jewish women in the 21st century.

At the Bat Mitzvah Academy, Bat Mitzvah girls will gain a deep appreciation and pride for their Jewish identity and heritage. They will become independent Jewish thinkers, with a social and moral guide to help them through their future as Jewish women. 

Our show stopping curriculum sees our girls explore our tradition and culture, the Jewish life cycle series, personal growth, relationships, challenges, the role of Jewish women, leadership and community. They will explore topics from self-respect and body image to the Jewish soul and Jewish marriage. 

Our girls will visit a Kosher restaurant, a Mikvah - Jewish ritual bath, enjoy a Challah bake with their Moms, celebrate Jewish festivals as a group, enjoy a spirited Family Shabbat dinner, meet Jewish influencers, and culminate the year with an inspiring and nachat-filled ceremony and celebration.

Our course is exciting, authentic and a most meaningful Bat Mitzvah experience. New York Hebrew’s Bat Mitzvah Academy is a gift for a lifetime. 

Classes will take place every other Tuesday from 6:00 - 7:15 PM at New York Hebrew's Chelsea/Flatiron location at 121 West 19th Street.
