Bat Mitzvah Scrapbook Belonging to Sarah Leavitt
About the Project
Sarah Leavitt grew up in Madison, Wisconsin where she celebrated her Bat Mitzvah at Temple Beth El. Both the boys and girls in her class took on the responsibilities of being a Jewish adult at age 13
Help transcribe this scrapbook as part of the Smithsonian's #BecauseOfHerStory campaign to share and celebrate the diverse stories of American girlhood. Coordination of this and other girlhood history projects in the Transcription Center (including selection, digitization, cataloging, outreach, and educational resources) was funded by the Smithsonian American Women's History Initiative.
