EMSB AND YM-YWHA SUCCESSFUL GROUP BAT MITZVAH

The English Montreal School Board (EMSB), in conjunction with the YM-YWHA Ben Weider Jewish Community Centre, completed its first Group Bat Mitzvah program recently. Adopting the same format followed by the Jewish day school system, there were eight girls fromfive EMSB schools – Royal West Academy, Royal Vale, Edinburgh, Willingdon and FACE — enrolled. Classes with teacher Samantha Druzin took place on Sunday mornings at the Ben Weider Jewish Community Centre in Snowdon. The actual bat mitzvah ceremony and reception was held at Beth Zion Congregation in Côte Saint-Luc, with close to 300 guests and party animation, light and sound provided by Global Events (www.global-events.ca). For more details click to view press release.
