Bar/Bat Mitzvah

MAZAL TOV!!!

This is an exciting and momentous occasion in your child’s life.    The ceremony marks the coming of age in Jewish tradition, where the community recognizes the Bar/Bat Mitzvah by calling them up to read Torah and participate in services. 

A Bar/Bat Mitzvah marks the time in a person’s life when the larger community begins to view that person as an adult.  In the Jewish tradition, a person is now capable of assuming more responsibilities, observing laws from the Torah, Mitzvot, participating in religious rituals, and being counted as part of a Minyan.

We are excited to share this moment with you and want to help make it special for you. We created a guidebook for you explaining the process at SHJC.  We hope this helps, but never hesitate to call our Hazzan with any questions at (631) 421-3224 ext.14 or emailing hazzan@shjc.org
