Interested in Bar-Bat Mitvah? Join us for Bar/Bat Mitzvah: Jewish Identity, Jewish Ritual, and Jewish Community

All are welcome to attend these family education classes for 5th, 6th, and 7th graders and their parents. We’ll reflect on the function of this rite of passage for teens and its meaning for the entire family.

Join Rabbi Laurie for three discussions on bar/bat mitzvah. In these sessions we’ll step back from policies and prayers and look at how contemporary Jews can re-invent bar/bat mitzvah as a meaningful rite of passage for Jewish teens. We’ll touch on Jewish identity, Jewish ritual, and Jewish community.

To register, please contact Sara at office@shamayim.org. (These classes are offered free of charge.)
