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 contact our Bar/Bat Mitzvah Coordinator Roz Rudofsky with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
