In Judaism, turning 13 is very important: it’s when you become Bar Mitzvah. The goal of the Bar Mitzvah club is to help you prepare for this special day, and keep growing.
The club will incorporate Hebrew reading, how to put on Tefillin, and prepare each child to read their individual portion of the Torah.
Club meetings combine education and fun. In addition to the club, which meets once a week, there are monthly trips and special Friday night dinners focused on Bar Mitzvah boys.
But most of all, you will learn about what it really means to be Jewish, and why the most important Jewish teen in the world is…you.
