Bar/Bat Mitzvah Game helps families confront the important issues of bar/bat mitzvah.

The Bar/Bat Mitzvah Game is a group learning experience which allows players to express some of their feelings about an up coming Bar/Bat Mitzvah ceremony and to explore some of the value conflicts which may arise. In addition, portions of the game reinforce some basic values about the importance of Jewish education, Bar/Bat Mitavah as an assumption of responsibility, and the importance of making the Bar/Bat Mitzvah an opportunity for performing Mitzvot.

DESCRIPTION

When you look at the game board, you will notice six kinds of squares: ACFION, VALUE, OK, NOT O.K., GROUP and WHIP. Each of these represent a different kind of task the learner must perform. When a player lands on a square, s/he takes one of the cards of the same category and follows the directions. While “winning the game is related to the speed at which a player progresses through the board, the reality of the experience is that the process of discusion and sharing becomes more important than the reality ofwinning.

TO BEGIN

  1. Each player chooses a colored playing piece and receives a ken/lo (Yes/No) Card. If students are in a class, use teams of 2 or 3, or 1 game board per 6 players.
  2. All players in turn throw the die and move their playing pieces as many places from the starting point as the die indicates. (The different starting points reflect the fact that different people have their Bar/Bat Mitzvah on different dates.)
  3. Once all the pieces are in place, the game begins with the player sitting closest to the starting point going first then the person to his/her left, and so on...
  4. Upon landing on a square, a player draws the top card from the correct pile and responds to that situation by assuming that the card is addressed personally to them--they respond with their own thought in mind.
  5. After reading aloud, the player should respond within a two minute time limit (3 minutes for GROUP CARDS).
  6. When the card involved is an ACTION CARD, the next step is for all players to ‘vote” on the answer given. The procedures for voting are explained in depth below.
  7. After voting or after the other types of cards are read and responded to, players have a minute or so to give feedback to the respondent, or comment on the content of the situation described in the card. During feedback positive comments are to be encouraged.
  8. Player then moves his/her playing piece the appropriate number of spacesthen the next player draws his/her card and game continues in this manner.

NOTE:Try to keep within the general boundaries of the time limits suggested, as this enhances the gamelike elements of the situationsThe Bar/Bat Mitzvah Game is a group learning experience which allows players to express some of their feelings about an up coming Bar/Bat Mitzvah ceremony and to explore some of the value conflicts which may arise.
