Bar/Bat Mitzvah

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

At Shir Tikvah, becoming a b'nei (bar/bat/b) 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 b'nei mitzvah process can mean for you and your child, please get in touch with Beth Levin, our cantor. Families of b'nei mitzvah students can use these resources to accompany them on their learning journey.
