B'nai Mitzvah

Youth B'nai Mitzvah

Approaching the age of 13 is an exciting time for children in our community! At Shir Hadash the bar/bat mitzvah dates are given out two years in advance, during the Bet class of our Alef/Bet/Gimel/Dalet four-year Hebrew School program.

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 Rabbi Schwartz at 408-358-1751 x3.

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 Aron or the temple office at 408-358–1751 for more details.
