Miss Mitzvah is an ongoing interactive installation and storytelling project which explores Bat Mitzvahs and coming-of-age rituals within a consumer-driven culture. Collecting narratives from young women in New York and Montreal through hands-on workshops and interviews, this first installation of the collection at the Museum of Jewish Montreal consists of an archive of real Bat Mitzvah dresses, invitations, photographs, and other genuine relics from various simchas, which we invite you to explore.
