Students receive individualized preparation to become bar or bat mitzvah under the guidance and support of the education department, clergy, lay leaders, and mentors.
In our b’nai mitzvah program, students:
- prepare to lead the Shabbat service in which they become bar or bat mitzvah
- learn to read or chant Torah and Haftarah portions
- learn about, and participate in, social action programs and projects
Temple Sinai looks forward to preparing your child to be called to the Torah as a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. In preparation, your child will start one-on-one sessions with our Rabbi, Cantor, or temple assigned tutor approximately 6 months before his or her Bar or Bat Mitzvah. The Board of Trustees has adopted a B’nai Mitzvah fee of $750 and this fee must be paid before your child begins his or her sessions ($250 of this amount is paid at time of reserving date). The remaining balance may be spread out however must be paid prior to starting with training.
