B’nai Mitzvah

 

The preparation of Bar and Bat Mitzvah students is something we take seriously. Families are encouraged to spend a significant time at Shabbat services prior to the big day so that they may become familiar with our service and forge a bond with our community. We also ask families to sign a pledge to continue their commitment to Jewish life after the Bar or Bat Mitzvah.

For Bat Mitzvah girls we have adopted the Matan Bat Mitzvah program that is known internationally for its creative approach and commitment to a high level of Judaic learning for women. Mothers and daughters bond over this program and together they deepen their knowledge.  You can read more about the program over here.  

We prepare Bar Mitzvah boys to read their Torah portion and all Bar Mitzvah boys are expected to commit to undertake some additional Torah study program together with a member of our religious leadership team.
