Adult B'nai Mitzvah
Adult B'nai/B'not Mitzvah
Are you interested in
- Expanding your Jewish literacy skills, confidence, and sense of connection with Judaism?
- Deepening your knowledge and commitment to Torah, Tefillah (Prayer) and Kehillah (Community)?
- Going through this process with others and celebrating your Jewish learning in our community?
Then consider joining a group of adults who will become B’nai and B’not Mitzvah together through a two-year process of engaging, independently and collectively.
This adult B’nai/B’not Mitzvah study process is for
- Those who never became Bar or Bat Mitzvah
- Those who had a Bar or Bat Mitzvah in form but not in substance
