Welcome to Midlife Bat Mitzvah!
I became an adult Bat Mitzvah in February 2011, at the age of 53 at Temple Sinai in Oakland, Calif.
I started this blog about 15 months before that to chronicle not just my Bat Mitzvah process but also the other transitions I was facing — changing careers, watching my teenage daughter move from kid to young adult, undertaking the challenge of writing and publishing a novel.
My Bat Mitzvah service is over, but I’m continuing to write about Judaism, fiction writing and publishing, midlife, family and other random stuff.
For more about my Bat Mitzvah journey, check out some of the early posts explaining what I believe and why I decided to become an adult Bat Mitzvah.
Here are links to some of them:
