Adult Bar/Bat Mitzvah

Not everyone celebrates Jewish learning at a young age, and among those who do, sometimes there are those who crave understanding, meaning and depth beyond what they learned in religious school. Knesset Israel, under the leadership of its Program Director, Myrna Hammerling, begins a new adult education class preparing adults for a group celebration of lifelong Jewish learning every 2-3 years. Celebrants engage with a wide swath of Jewish tradition, practice and resources and learn to read Hebrew, chant Torah and lead part of the shabbat service. Graduates of the program continue to lead services and chant Torah alongside other members of the congregation. Our current class is on track to celebrate in the fall of 2013.
