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. In our congregation, this important chapter in a child’s life brings the entire family together to create and celebrate a meaningful and memorable Jewish experience. Beyond the act of preparing for Shabbat services (Friday evening and Saturday morning), it is a learning process which students and families experience together over a number of years.
At Congregation B’nai Israel’s ARJE accredited, Barry Ira Graff School for Living Judaism, 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 witness the important day.
