When one of our students becomes a bar/bat mitzvah, it is an important event, not only for the student, but for his or her family and for our entire congregation. The student has dedicated him- or herself to study and preparation enabled by the family, to take their place as a participant in the Jewish life of the community.
Beit Haverim takes great pride in the young men and women who become B'nai Mitzvah and who are able to lead our worship service, read or chant Torah and Haftorarah, deliver a d'var Torah, and complete a mitzvah project. The skills our students develop allow them to participate actively in synagogue life in high school, college and beyond. We hope that the students and their families will find the experience enriching and meaningful so that they will develop a lifelong commitment to Judaism.
We invite you to read our B'nai Mitzvah Handbook to learn more about the Beit Haverim program.
