Bar & Bat Mitzvah Preparation

Knesset Israel's Bar/Bat Mitzvah Program is a particular source of pride for the congregation. Our students study with the Rabbi and a variety of teachers and tutors—in class and one-on-one—in order to learn to chant Torah and Haftara and lead services. Courses on history and Jewish identity complement the skills curriculum, and many students go on to become teachers themselves.

The following files, resources for current students and their parents, are updated each year:
