This program is designed for any students looking for an innovative and progressive B’nai Mitzvah program that explores the boundaries of tradition to provide students and their families with a deep and meaningful experience. It is perfect for families with busy schedules who desire a flexible approach to exploring spirituality and this rite of passage.
Children enrolled in our B’nai Mitzvah program should be open to discussing ideas, becoming a part of a community, exploring the outdoors and learning more about social justice. Research shows that experiential learning is a successful and proven way to absorb new ideas and information in a way that encourages lifelong learning. We are excited to utilize this method to make your child’s B’nai Mitzvah a positive and memorable experience.
We are confident that by the end of participating in this program, participants will feel more comfortable engaging with spirituality and Judaism, and enter into their teenage years more inquiring, confident and socially aware.
This is a two-year program for incoming 6th graders*. In order to reap the many benefits of our two-year program, we encourage B’nai Mitzvah services for this first cohort take place between January and December.
*This program is geared towards 6th graders, so that by the time participants have completed this two-year program, the majority of them have turned 13. Please call our Program Manager at 415.543.2267 if you have any questions about these guidelines.
