Adult B’nai Mitzvah
May 1 @ 10:30 pm - 12:00 am

Never became a Bar or Bat Mitzvah? Now is your time! Becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah as an adult provides a unique opportunity to explore Jewish thought, practice and ritual. This is an 18-month class, with lively conversation on a variety of topics including liturgy and prayer, holidays, lifecycle, text study, theology, Reform Judaism. This is an amazing way to speak to your Jewish soul, to create community through shared learning, doing mitzvot and building relationships with others, lasting long beyond the class itself. It is also an opportunity for adults to learn the skills to be called to the Torah. Each class member will have the opportunity to read from the Torah as desired, and to help lead the congregation, culminating with a Shabbat morning celebration on March 7, 2020.
