Becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah at Temple B'nai Abraham
Becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah at Temple B'nai Abraham

Through the process of becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah at Temple B'nai Abraham, we nurture knowledgeable young Jewish adults who will become active members of the community, and who will have a love of Judaism that will guide them throughout their lives.

You will receive great joy watching your child learn, grow and then read from Torah on that special Shabbat as you share with your loved ones, friends and the congregational family. Focusing on the values that are most important in our tradition, you and your child will explore together what commitments we can make to bring these principles to life. Judaism has a lot of special wisdom to offer, but it is up to each of us to make it real.

On this page we offer some guidance and tools to assist you in making this a loving and meaningful experience for the entire family. It is designed to provide you with the pertinent information on the procedures, tasks, schedules and participation integral to the Bar/Bat Mitzvah process and Shabbat morning services.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Rabbi Kulwin, Cantor Epstein, Rabbi Faith Joy Dantowitz, or Melissa G. Weiner, Director of Jewish Learning  with any questions or comments.
