For B’nai Mitzvah students, click here for the B’nai Mitzvah Handbook.
Our Religious School team is moving toward an immersive approach to B’nai Mitzvah training through the integration of Jewish Mindfulness training into B’nai Mitzvah preparation. B’nai Mitzvah students will be given the opportunity to learn and connect on a deeper and more spiritual level to their particular parashot, Torah blessings, Ashrei, and other prayers in the years leading up to their B’nai Mitzvah. This will allow students time to develop the confidence and competencies necessary for a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, and instill an ongoing connection to Jewish life.
At Congregation Shaarey Zedek, we are pleased to set the date of your child’s Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah six months after your child’s seventh birthday. Approximately one year before, our B’nai Mitzvah families meet as a group to get acquainted and meet the clergy and the planning team. We provide a personalized handbook for your child with prayers and access to the melodies found in the Audio T’fillah on our website.
To set the date or for more information, please contact Marci Iwrey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To access audio files of prayers click the links below.
We ask our B’nai Mitzvah to perform 12 hours of community service, which they may select from these three categories.

Not every child learns the same way, in school, or in the religious school setting. We have the means to accommodate all special needs or circumstances. We want your child to experience their B’nai Mitzvah in the most meaningful way. We work with your family to make the B’nai Mitzvah experience one your child will feel comfortable with, and one they will remember with pride.
