Becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah at Temple Sholom represents the completion of a child’s primary and middle school Religious Education, typically around the 13th birthday. We celebrate this rite of passage in a congregational setting on Shabbat mornings. In addition to classroom work, students meet with their Rabbinic Mentor and Cantor over the course of a year, as well as individual tutoring sessions. This long term preparation forges bonds and enables thoughtful and mature approaches to the entire experience. As a privilege of membership, the family may use Temple facilities for their extended celebration.
"Through this experience I have learned that there is no substitute for hard work."
