B’nai Mitzvot

Bar/Bat Mitzvah students are moving from childhood to adulthood, from learning to be responsible to being responsible. As a son or daughter of the commandments, you commit yourself to a proud membership in our ancient people.

At Temple Shalom, adults who never had the opportunity to participate in preparation for and leading an entire service have, on occasion, undergone adult Bar or Bat Mitzvah. In recent years, a group of six women of the congregation, all leaders, celebrated with each other as a group and now proudly wear talitot at services.
