The essay should be either a reflection of the importance of becoming a Bat Mitzvah and how it has affected your life, or what you are looking forward to about becoming a Bat Mitzvah and what you expect to learn and gain from the experience.
Eligibility: Author must be a Jewish girl age 8-15
1. Essay should be written in the first person.
2. It should be between 400-700 words.

I’m having trouble submitting and keep getting the error message “please enter a valid number” when I enter my birth date. I’ve tried changing the format of the date but that hasn’t helped. What is the proper format so my entry will be accepted by the system?
Oh gosh im having the exact same problem! i have no idea what to do and its soooo annoying.
Me too! I can’t figure it out!
I emailed it after trying for a long time to submit here…
The problem should be fixed now, but if you’re still having trouble you can email your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org.
