Torah and togetherness – a gender-neutral bnei mitzvah

Webber explained that it was “the first” non-binary Mitzvah they have had “on the radar” it was “going to be far from the last one.”

Webber came to the decision to name the gender-neutral ceremony a “B’nei Mitzvah” because “b’nei” is a plural term which could refer to a mixed-gender group of people.

Other options had included “ban”, which combines the Hebrew for boy and girl, as well as “sera”, which means offspring or seed. [via]
