Temple Judea is known for its extraordinary Bar and Bat Mitzvah ceremonies. At the age of 13 a Jewish child becomes a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, a son or daughter of the commandments. Now responsible for their own ritual and ethical behavior, the child and family celebrate this milestone by coming to Torah and helping to lead services. At Temple Judea this is a warm, joyful and meaningful experience. Students need to begin their formal studies 4 years in advance, at our wonderful religious school or at another synagogue. One can find a date for the ceremony as far as 3 years before the celebration. Within 1 year of the Bar and Bat Mitzvah, students begin their studies of prayers and they start to learn their Torah and Haftarah sections. A cantor or professional Bar/Bat Mitzvah teacher from Temple Judea will train your child. It's a great joy.
If your family is preparing for a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, you know what's involved. We want to make the experience as meaningful and stress-free as possible.
