B’nai Mitzvah

The B’nai Mitzvah journey at B’nai Jeshurun is framed by Torah (study), avodah (prayer), and gemilut hesed (acts of loving-kindness), where children will continue to build on their foundation of Jewish education, participate in meaningful ritual and prayer experiences, and discover that they have the ability and responsibility to make an impact on the world.

Your child’s bar/bat mitzvah is an affirmation of your family’s commitment to Jewish community and education. It is an exhilarating moment in a journey of learning, spiritual growth and commitment to mitzvot. You will discover the rewards of recognizing your child’s steps from childhood towards maturity within the context of a committed Jewish life. And it is holy for us as a community to support and celebrate this transformation with you.

“Both my son and my daughter attended Hebrew School and became b’nai mitzvah at BJ. It was a very enriching and satisfying experience for us all.”

To prepare for their simha, students participate in one-on-one tutoring, family programs, and meetings with the clergy. Our B’nai Mitzvah and Family Life and Learning teams work with our families to build the foundations for this wonderful lifecycle experience. Our team of teachers, tutors, clergy, and staff are here for our families every step of the way.
