Bar/Bat–Mitzvah is only a beginning. It represents a commitment to Jewish learning and living, and of dedication to the welfare of the Jewish community.  Most of all, it represents a commitment to continued study and exploration.  In the truest sense of the word, Bar/Bat-Mitzvah is a “commencement” of an emerging Jewish adult’s religious studies.

As our seventh grade students prepare to become b’nei mitzvah, they will seek to answer the questions, what does it mean to be a Jewish adult/who am I as a Jewish adult? What does it mean to be a Jewish leader?  What is my responsibility with repairing the world. They will lead our younger students in prayer to enhance their preparation for leading the congregation on the day of their b’nei mitzvah.

Partnering with Moving Traditions, we will be offering family education programming and a series of experiential programs geared towards sixth and seventh graders.

All family sessions are designed for pre-teens and their parents to learn together, to listen to one another’s perspectives, and to enrich the meaning of the b’nai mitzvah as a lifecycle ritual.

Because Bar/Bat–Mitzvah is a long process, with lots of details to manage, we have put together a manual to help you with the logistics and are available to answer questions and help you manage the details.  We want to make the process as smooth as possible, and ultimately, a process in which the lives of the child and family are together enriched and blessed.
