Tiffany Haddish is Studying Hebrew As She Prepares For Her own Bat Mitzvah.
Tiffany is diving deeper into her Jewish roots by having a bat mitzvah ceremony for herself — and by studying Hebrew.
“I’m going to read from the Torah and everything,” Haddish told USA Today bout the upcoming ritual.
Adult bar or bat mitzvah celebrations are less about marking a coming of age and more about participants’ desires to confirm and celebrate their Jewish identities. Many synagogues in the U.S. now have special programs for adults who didn’t have bar or bat mitzvah ceremonies as children, and the classes often include education about Judaism, Jewish values and the Hebrew language.
