B'Nei Mitzvah

At MRT we see the celebration of the Bar or Bat Mitzvah as a milestone in a Jewish life as they go on to Confirmation. We recognize it as a significant accomplishment and seek to ensure your child feels confident and prepared for his or her special day. Approximately eight months prior to your child’s simcha, he or she will begin weekly lessons with Cantor Clissold. The focus of these lessons will be mastery of the Hebrew prayers, Torah and Haftarah portions. Incorporated throughout the months are also monthly meetings with Rabbi Kline to discuss and prepare for your child’s D’var Torah and Mitzvah Projects. Families are encouraged to participate throughout the whole process of B’nei Mitzvah, including the service. Children will develop and execute a social action project in conjunction with their studies. We understand many of our families are interfaith and look for opportunities engage the non-Jewish parents and family, who have supported and encouraged their Jewish student.
