B’nai Mitzvah training is offered for all children who have completed the required Hebrew School syllabus and are preparing to study for their bar/bat mitzvah. Students will meet with the Cantor to learn their Torah and Haftorah portions as well as meet separately with an adult mentor in the congregation who will help them with their speeches.
For more details on the B’nai Mitzvah program, please download our B’nai Mitzvah Guide.
Notification of Bar/Bat mitzvah: Dates are given out two years in advance for the bet class. Lessons begin 24 weeks before the actual event.
Shir Hadash also conducts an Adult B’nai Mitzvah program on a biennial basis. Contact or the temple office at (408) 358–1751 for more details.
