The B’nai Mitzvah Program is coordinated through the offices of the Rabbi, Cantor and Principal. Approximately six months prior to the Bar/Bat Mitzvah, students are trained in leadership of Shabbat prayers; Torah and Haftarah reading and cantillation; analysis and study of the Torah portion; personal mitzvah project; and preparation of the Bar/Bat Mitzvah speech. The goal is to make the experience meaningful and to help in the development of a lifelong Jewish identity.
In addition, family members are encouraged to read Torah during the Bar/Bar Mitzvah worship. Training by Cantor Romalis is available. This piece makes the Bar/Bat Mitzvah experience a very special "family affair."
ADULT BAR/BAT MITZVAH course of study also available upon request from groups or individuals.
