B'nei Mitzvah

In order to enroll a 7th grader in our b'nei mitzvah program, this student must have previouslyparticipated in 5th grade Kadima or Chug Mishpacha and 6th grade Makom program. Over the course of these three years,students will learn how to read Hebrew prayers, practice leading the congregation, examine the meaning of the prayers, and engage in Jewish learning.

The b'nei mitzvah class meets during Makom on Wednesday from 4:00-7:00 pm.Students come only once a week and stay to eat dinner together,creating a fun-filled environment that helps to build community. Highlights of the year include an overnight retreat, family programming,service learning, individual sessions with the clergy, and class Shabbat dinners—all contributing to a strong sense of community and support during this unique year.
