B’nai Mitzvah Parents
Feb 24 @ 2:20 pm - 3:20 pm

Instructor: Judy Naiman
Time: Sundays, February 24, March 3, 10, 17, 31; 9:20 a.m. – 10:20 a.m.
Registration is required.

This class is for parents of students who will become B’nai Mitzvah in the near future. In five sessions, the class discusses the meaning of this life cycle event and the mitzvah of celebrating Shabbat; provides information about your responsibilities and the sequence of your child’s preparation; explains the structure of the worship service using Mishkan Tefilah, the Reform siddur (prayerbook); and provides an opportunity to prepare a D’var Torah. The class blends structured teaching, practical advice, and shared experiences. The goal is to make the Bar/Bat Mitzvah preparation process a deeply meaningful experience for the whole family and to perpetuate the spirit of Jewish community and tradition. Parents generally take the class from 6 to 18 months before the Bar/Bat Mitzvah event. Past participants in the class, both Jewish and non-Jewish parents, report that the sessions helped them to feel better prepared, gave them an opportunity to talk with other pre-B’nai Mitzvah parents, and taught them numerous aspects of the tradition and liturgy involved in this lifecycle event.
