The Bar/Bat Mitzvah Process

The Bar/Bat Mitzvah process is a special time for all the members of the family; the Bar/Bat Mitzvah, the parents, as well as the extended family members. This process is a commitment of time and energy to express your connection to Judaism and to the generations who have gone before us.

Most of our students begin their formal Jewish education in Kindergarten with the Consecration service. Along the way, they begin to understand that Jewish learning continues for one's entire life. Bar/Bat Mitzvah is one more step along the path of becoming a knowledgeable and practicing Jewish adult.

If the Bar/Bat Mitzvah is treated as a catalyst in the child's life -- a time for grappling with ideas and identities -- it can be an opportunity for growth and enrichment for the entire family. The Bar/Bat Mitzvah service, and the training and preparation that precede it, can be a time of deep meaning, high significance and everlasting commitment for the child and the family.

Temple Menorah is committed to making the Bar/Bat Mitzvah experience one of the great religious and personal moments in your life.
