Becoming B'nai Mitzvah at TBJ

The process of becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah is a sacred journey; one that prepares each young person to embrace their responsibility for the mitzvot, commandments, of our tradition and for themselves as members of klal yisrael,  the Jewish people.

It is a milestone moment for not only each individual family but for our entire community as well. We, your educators and clergy, are here to support and guide you along this sacred path.

Each and every one of our students brings their unique strengths to the experience which makes each Bar & Bat Mitzvah one of a kind. All of us on the team at Congregation B'nai Jeshurun are here to support each student and family to ensure that they will ascend the bimah with pride, confidence and a deep sense of meaning.

Throughout the Bnai Mitzvah process your character strengths and those of your child will be developed, challenged, and utilized.

We hope through this journey that you feel your love of learning encouraged, your gratitude grow, and your spirituality and hope nurtured!

The B'nai Mitzvah program is overseen by Cantor Lucy Fishbein in coordination with our B'nai Mitzvah Coordinator, Emily Kaufman-Wank.
