Yael Schneider at her Bat Mitzah with Betsy Cohen-Kallus and Susan Weidman Schneider at the Western Wall in Jerusalem

The Bat Mitzvah ceremony is now widely accepted in American Judaism. Some take place, however, in locations of particular religious significance. Twelve-year-old Yael Schneider is pictured above reading from the Torah at the Western Wall in Jerusalem. On her left is the prayer leader, Betsy Cohen-Kallus, and on her right is her mother, Susan Weidman Schneider, editor of the Jewish feminist publication Lilith.
