B'nai Mitzvah

Youth B'nai Mitzvah

Approaching the age of 13 is an exciting time for children in our community! At Shir Hadash, our children attend our Kulanu Hebrew program beginning in 3rd grade.   Two years prior to your child becoming 13 years old, the bar/bat Mitzvah dates are given out.  This is the beginning of the journey for your family as your child studies to become bar/bat mitzvah.

For all of the details on our b’nai mitzvah program, please download our B’nai Mitzvah Guide (PDF). Planning on holding your celebration at Shir Hadash?

The cantor regularly meets with and provides support to students as they learn their Torah and Haftorah portions. In addition, our rabbis meet with the students to enhance their understanding of their Torah and Haftorah portions and to prepare their speeches.

Is your child in a unique situation, or do you have a question about a situation that might be different? We would be happy to provide support and answer your questions. Please get in touch with Cantor Felder-Levy at 408-358-1751 x8.

Adult B'Nai Mitzvah

Shir Hadash leads an adult b’nai mitzvah program on a biennial basis for interested adults who did not have a bar/bat mitzvah in their youth. This enriching and meaningful program is a highlight of the year for everyone involved and is a wonderful way to explore and deepen one's connection to the Torah and to our Jewish community.

Please contact Rabbi Riter or the temple office at 408-358–1751 for more details.
