Edited by comedic performance artist and activist Morgan Bassichis with artist and educator Jay Saper and writer Rachel Valinsky, Questions to Ask Before Your Bat Mitzvah invites 36 writers, artists, scholars and activists to offer accessible reflections on 36 questions to help young Jews—and anyone else who picks up this book—feel grounded in the Jewish radical tradition, unlearn Zionism and deepen their solidarity with Palestinians.

With a foreword by seminal scholar-activist Angela Y. Davis and illustrations by artist Nicole Eisenman, this essential volume offers an accessible and challenging set of personal and collective responses to critical questions for our time. Questions included range from "What even is a Bat Mitzvah?" and "I’m queer/nonbinary/secular/old/not even Jewish—are Bat Mitzvahs for me?" to "What do Palestinian kids do when they turn thirteen?"

Morgan Bassichis is a comedic performer whose previous book, The Odd Years, was published by Wendy’s Subway in 2020.

Angela Y. Davis is an American academic and activist. Nicole Eisenman is an American artist and MacArthur Fellow who lives and works in Brooklyn.
