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.
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 Jewish knowledge. We prepare Bar Mitzvah boys to read their Torah portion. B’nai Mitzvah are encouraged to do some individualized program of study with Rabbi Oser and one of their parents.
