"The bat mitzvah was a true rite of passage and transformation that comprised many aspects and layers...She took her full space as a ritual leader in the congregation, and did so with such grace, charm and intentionality. It was deeply moving for everyone, and not only for me her mother.
It makes a difference not only to have women who are willing and able to read Torah, but the presence of active young women taking ritual leadership encourages women both younger and older to take their place and have their voice in community".
- Rabba Melanie Landau reflecting on her daughter's Bat Mitzvah at Shira Hadasha.
