    I have been asked to prepare an initiation for my nephew – part-Jewish, part-German, living in South Africa – so I have been looking for a mix of resources to develop a programme for a weekend, and the preparation prior. Thanks for making this document available.

    Just came from the Art of Manliness article about the importance of rites of passage. Read all the comments, and followed the link you put in to get to the website. Saw “FREE … EBOOK” and couldn’t resist – I love reading, and as one of the stuck-in-limbo (perhaps only my legs are still stuck, but I still don’t feel like I’ve truly entered manhood yet) males I’m interested in seeing what you have to say about the topic. I’ll definitely come back after I read it (this week, for sure) and tell you my response.

    Each time a person stops to comment and finds the blog useful I am humbled beyond measure. As you and your family design a custom rites of passage program for your grandson feel free to visit the site for more insights as I add more posts and update the resources page. Beyond that contact me for anything you feel I may be able to assist you with.

    Good morning,
    I’m a grandmother whose grandson attended his best friend’s rites of passage just this morning, his friend is jewish and is having a Barmitzvah. I feel my grandson should experience a ceremony as well. Neither my husband or grandson’s father are familiar with this experience so I will download your info in hopes that by next year this time we will be able to have a ceremony even if it is just the immediate family. The young man will be fourteen next year on Valetines Day. I wanted to do it this year but it’s to close to his thirteenth birthday. Thank you for sharing your resources with me. God bless you and your family.

    Thanks so much for stopping by Dani! I appreciate your enthusiasm. Once you’ve had a chance to read through the ebook feel free to come back to the site with your comments, suggestions for additional material on this topic and—most importantly—sharing what your next steps are to creating a program for your son.

    Wow, I’ve come just in time! This is awesome! I’m so glad to be here. I’ve considered a rites of passage ceremony for my son for at least the past three years, but have progressively gotten away from the thought of it. I’m grateful to once again have the subject matter and opportunity before me and will receive it with full consciousness. Thank you for changing our world.

Thanks for visiting. Keep up your work with young people in Harlem. Let’s stay connected.

    I am looking forward to the free download. I work with young African-American males in Harlem, USA and at my Baptist Church. I need some more material to effectively foster postive change.
