Life Moments

B’nai Mitzvah

When a child is ready to become a Bar or Bat Mitzvah (B’nai Mitzvah plural), it signifies that they are prepared to take on the responsibilities for their Jewish adulthood. These include participating in and conducting religious rituals, studying and teaching Torah, and working to repair the world.
At Temple Emanuel, our Sunday School and Hebrew School programs begin preparing your child to become a Bar or Bat Mitzvah from a young age. About a year before they are planning to become a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, they will begin one-on-one training with Rabbi Farb.
Becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah is observed by leading our community Shabbat services, by reading from the Torah, by teaching a D’var Torah about the weekly Torah portion, by leading a Mitzvah project to make the world a better place, and of course with food and dancing to celebrate this important life achievement.

If you would like more information about the B’nai Mitzvah program, please contact the
Religious School Director.
