Bnai Mitzvah Program

Bais Abe's Bar and Bat Mitzvah Program is  actually different than preparation for a bar and bat mitzvah. It’s really a way of learning about being an adult Jew.

 

 

The Details

The Bnai Mitzvah program is recommended as a two year program for 11-13 year olds. So if your child participated last year, they are encouraged to participate once again!  Of course your child could participate for one year as well.

The cost is $250/student. The program includes guest speakers, field trips, Jewish learning, and fun!
