We recognize that Bar and Bat Mitzvah is an important event in the life of a Jewish child and his/her family. For this reason, we endeavor to make the process of becoming b’nai mitzvah as enjoyable and personally meaningful as possible. Our students meet individually with both the b’nai mitzvah tutor, who is also our Education Director, and the Rabbi. Students are encouraged to choose their own section of Torah to read, as well as their favorite songs and prayers for the service. Our goal is for students to be challenged enough to feel the pride of accomplishment, without being so stressed that they cannot enjoy the process.
B’nai Mitzvah dates are set in the January of the year prior to the b’nai mitzvah year. B’nai Mitzvah candidates are expected to continue their Hebrew and Religious studies throughout the preparation period, as well as to continue in Hebrew School through Confirmation.
