B'nai Mitzvah Overview & Resources

The B'nai Mitzvah ( the plural of bar/bat mitzvah) experience combines the most joyous and solemn of moments among all of our rites. Welcoming young people as adults into our Jewish community enriches us all. At Temple Isaiah, our staff, clergy and families collaborate to make the experience one of deep meaning for our youth, while at the same time helping them to celebrate a milestone in a way that will be memorable.

Each child's journey to this moment is unique. Each family's hopes and expectations of this accomplishment are individual. Our community gathers around each child and family, helping them discover all of the dimensions of B'nai Mitzvah that make it such a critical passage.

Preparations for the rituals of B'nai Mitzvah are extensive. Our educational programs are structured to ensure that children approach their special day with confidence. Every child should feel that he or she has the capability to accomplish this milestone and we encourage families who have concerns to work with the clergy and staff individually.

We encourage families who are beginning the bar/bat mitzvah year to download the Bar/Bat Mitzvah Handbook
