The IMPJ, as part of its mission to make pluralistic Judaism accessible to all Israelis, has established a one-stop-center for lifecycle events called SADOT. Through SADOT, Israelis from across the country can find a congregation and/or rabbi to officiate at their wedding, have an egalitarian Bar or Bat Mitzvah ceremony, conduct a funeral or any other event life presents.
In an effort to present Israeli girls with the option of having a meaningful Bat Mitzvah ceremony, such as the one enjoyed by boys, the IMPJ has developed the “Bat Mitzvah Revolution” program, which includes increasing awareness, mothers and daughters’ preparation courses and the ceremony itself, as fits the girl and family. In 2015, the IMPJ launched the Bat12.org website, the one-stop information center for girls and their families to learn about all of the available options for a meaningful Bat Mitzvah through the IMPJ.
