Temple Judea’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah program is a comprehensive program that engages the entire family in a meaningful B’nai Mitvzah experience. The Temple Judea community celebrates with each student as they become a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. It is truly memorable for everyone involved.
Approximately 3 years before their 13th birthday, each student in our Religious School will be assigned a date for their Bar/Bat Mitzvah.
Approximately 10 months prior to the B’nai Mitzvah, the student begins a 3 month class to learn more about the meaning of the prayers in our Shabbat morning service. This class is attended by the student and parent(s) to learn more about the B’nai Mitzvah process. The remaining 7 months will be spent with an individual tutor working on their Torah and Haftarah as well as reviewing their prayers. Each student will meet with a member of our clergy team to study Torah and prepare a d’var Torah for their special day.
We recognize that the process of becoming Bar or Bat Mitzvah is a significant milestone for the entire family. Parents are encouraged to accompany their child to lessons and meetings with the clergy team to be fully engaged and supportive of the process.
Our entire staff stands ready with encouragement, help, and support as your family engages in this momentous journey. Please feel free to contact our office at any time with any questions or concerns along the way.
