The B’nai Mitzvah is a wonderful and rewarding experience for both our children as well our community. It is a year of learning meant to enhance the very quality of our children’s Jewish life. We take the B’nai Mitzvah process very seriously and celebrate our children’s wonderful successes.
Once the date for the Bar/Bat mitzvah has been determined, Rabbi Kozlow begins meeting with the student privately to prepare them for their B’nai Mitzvah one year before their chosen date. The children learn to read from the Torah, chant the Haftorah, write a sermon and assist Rabbi Kozlow with the leading of services.
We cherish these powerful moments of Jewish ritual life and celebrate them as stepping stones to even greater and richer engagement with Jewish life.
