Forget Bat Mizvah’s have a period party instead

New Age Judaic practice always strikes a weird note with me, it sounds good, you can make some great points from it, but in similar vein that many chumras become halacha at what point will these made up rituals and practices be perceived as halach? Then again many of our traditions were made up at some point and have since become more the norm.

I’m sure that at some point out traditions may have been thought as strange by the mainstream and eventually they became accepted, but who knows? Zeek has an article about period parties and in theory it’s not a bad idea, celebrating the gift of life, sounds good to me, teaching a young girl the difference between tampons and pads, great!
