B-Mitzvah Family Text Discussion Cards


These 18 text-based activities — plus 8-page leader’s guide — prompt B-Mitzvah teens to consider questions by examining them through a Jewish lens, using thought-provoking texts from the Jewish tradition as activators.

Each card includes a Jewish text, a prompt for discussion, a chance to share something personal, and an activity. Families can explore core Jewish values, share experiences, and connect their own insights to the wisdom of Jewish tradition.

The cards are also a tool for rabbis, other spiritual leaders, and Jewish educators to involve families in B-Mitzvah preparation.

The guide includes:

  • How to use the JGN-DOROT text cards with:
  • Families
  • Clergy, Spiritual Leaders, and Educators
  • Intergenerational Programs
  • Setup and materials
  • Full script
  • Follow-up and assessment
