The Bar/Bat Mitzvah experience marks the transition from childhood to responsible adulthood. Judaism, both in belief and deed, is guided by mitzvot-those lessons of the ages that give structure, meaning and purpose to our lives. This is a special time filled with excitement and deep meaning. We can remember when the day of our child's Bar/Bat Mitzvah seemed so far away. Now it has arrived. This important chapter of the family's life involves dedication from the Bar/Bat Mitzvah student and has the capacity to enlighten the whole family. Beyond the act of preparing for a Shabbat morning service, it is a learning process which students experience over a number of years, and is the culmination of CBI's TAG 13 program.
At Congregation B'nai Israel we provide many ways for the whole family to appreciate the true spirit of the Bar/Bat Mitzvah. There are mitzvot to perform, experiences to share and a whole synagogue to bear witness on the important day.The finale is usually a great celebration honoring the momentous occasion.
