Miss Mitzvah

Miss MitzvahAaaah. Bat mitzvah celebrations in a consumer-driven culture. Zoe Penina Baker has created an interactive installation and storytelling project to explore just this issue. With narratives collected from young women across North America via hands-on workshops and interviews, this is a growing archive of stories and bat mitzvah dresses, party invitations, photographs, and other objects and ephemera from the 1990s and 2000s. The Miss Mitzvah Podcast acts as a companion to the traveling exhibition, spotlighting participants in the project, and offering stories of Jewish female identity and coming of age no matter where you are. zoepeninabaker.net
