B'nei Mitzvah

In order to enroll a 7th grader in our b'nei mitzvah
program, this student must have previously participated
in our 5th and 6th grade programs. 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 runs the course of the
student's 7th grade year and meets on Tuesday afternoons
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.
