Preparation for Bar and Bat Mitzvah begins in Religious School with Hebrew and Judaic Studies. When students are 12-18 months from their Bar or Bat Mitzvah date, the family will be invited to attend the B’nai Mitzvah Family Orientation, which is held in the fall. Students will also participate in a B’nai Mitzvah class on Wednesday afternoons as well as individual instruction with Rabbi Jordan.
Students have the opportunity to select a mitzvah project as a part of their Bar/Bat Mitzvah process. Our community and Religious School is supportive of each effort to meet our Jewish obligation of tikkun olam and tzedakah. Students find this aspect to be engaging and very meaningful personally, within our community, and often globally.
