B’nai Mitzvah

B’nai Mitzvah

To be called to the Torah as a Bar or Bat Mitzvah marks a significant milestone in the journey from childhood to maturity for Jewish young people. At Beth Jacob, we strive to ensure that each child and their family will experience the spiritual power of this ceremony in a positive, meaningful way. In preparation for Bar and Bat Mitzvah, our students take part in a variety of activities designed to deepen their understanding of Judaism. All b’nai mitzvah students are required to attend the shul’s b’nai mitzvah program during the year prior to their simcha. Rabbi Hillel leads this dynamic program, designed to provide opportunities to learn, have interesting discussions, and develop a shul chevra.

Parental Involvement

Parental involvement is key to the success of our program and to the entire experience. We will encourage and nurture the involvement of parents with students.

Adding God to the Guest List

We will emphasize the religious and spiritual significance of this special occasion. We strive to foster meaningful connections between your child and Judaism, Israel, and the Jewish people.
