Bat Mitzvah Club

 

The Bat Mitzvah Club prepares girls for this momentous day in their lives. This fun club for girls follows the motto "Good Friends. Good Deeds. Good Times." Once a month, the the 6th and 7th grade girls will meet for an interactive class and participate in engaging activities that promote friendship, life lessons, and tie-ins with Jewish culture. As part of the Bat Mitzvah club, we learn about Jewish women throughout history, the story of their lives, their personalities, and the lessons for every Bat Mitzvah girl today. Our goal is to inspire a generation of Jewish girls to become confident, smart, thoughtful women who are instilled with knowledge, confidence, spiritual awareness, and understanding that there is more to their Bat Mitzvah than just the party.


Bar Mitzvah Club

 

A  Bar Mitzvah is more than just an event, it is a process. It is the process through which a young boy crosses the threshold into manhood. A Bar Mitzvah is probably the most important milestone in a young Jewish boy’s life and the excitement of the standard preparations such as Torah reading lessons and party preparations are only part of the picture. Once a month, the 6th and 7th grade boys will meet for an interactive class and exciting Mitzvah Projects which cover key topics in Judaism. The Bar Mitzvah Club serves to foster Jewish pride through knowledge in these young boys as they prepare to take their place as tomorrow's Jewish men
