B’nai MitzvahSamuel

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, Cantorial Soloist, 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 $850 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.
