Bar/Bat Mitzvah is an opportunity for your son or daughter and entire family to enjoy a major Jewish life-cycle experience. The Bar/Bat Mitzvah involves your family and our congregation in Jewish values by teaching Torah. In so doing, your child demonstrates willingness to study and to celebrate Judaism with the cooperation of parents. The Bar/Bat Mitzvah ceremony can take on lasting significance for the family that uses it to affirm and strengthen their commitment to Jewish life.
This information is designed to help the student and his/her family prepare to fulfill this mitzvah with understanding, dignity and beauty.
The ceremony marking this coming of age is an important event, not only in the life of the youngster, but for the entire family. For the Bar/Bat Mitzvah candidate it represents the culmination of a year of intensive training and the time for rededication to our Jewish way of life. As you make your plans and as you discuss the upcoming ceremony with your child, remember that this day is above all, a significant religious event.
Activities planned should be viewed with the beautiful traditions of Judaism in mind. Please consult the Rabbis if you have any questions.
