Bar/Bat Mitzvah

Welcome, B'nei Mitzvah Class of 2022!

Refer to the availability calendar, then request a ceremony date below:

Refer to the availability calendar, then choose your preferred dates & times (1st and 2nd choice). Please choose a date that falls shortly after (or on) your child's 13th birthday. Priority is given based on proximity to the child's birthday.

Note that we will not be able to hold any dates in the meantime.

Receptions: The Temple building can make a wonderful space for a reception after the ceremony. Learn more about our reception space, including rental fees and room capacities.

 Note that an hour-long kiddush is already included as part of the b'nei mitzvah package.

Payment and Billing: When you receive confirmation (early-mid January), you will be billed for the B’nei Mitzvah Package ($2,100 total), which includes the b’nei mitzvah ceremony, a 1-hour kiddush, and all tutoring sessions with Beth. A deposit of $200 will be due on January 30. The remaining balance of $1,900 will be due 30 days before the ceremony date. Those using the Temple for a reception venue will be asked to pay those fees at the same time.

The journey to the day is as important as the day itself.

At Shir Tikvah, becoming a bar or bat mitzvah is a process that involves the whole family. We know that this rite of passage can transform the lives of students as they learn and interpret their Torah portions, practice the songs and prayers, and prepare for the service itself. It's a year of growth—spiritually, emotionally, and intellectually for everybody—culminating in a memorable and most happy celebration. 

If you'd like to discuss what the bar and bat mitzvah process can mean for you and your child, please get in touch with Beth Levin, our cantor. And take a look at the resources we have available to you.
