Be Mitzvah Begins
September 23, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
Be Mitzvah is a year-long Bar/Bat Mitzvah program for students going into the 7th grade. Each cohort will meet weekly, combining classroom work with monthly community, social-service work. The in-class curriculum will include a combination of Tikkun middot (provided by the Institute for Jewish Spirituality), social action study (provided by Repair the World), Hebrew language, and prayer. In addition to the weekly gatherings, there will be 3 special hands-on programs during the year in which the students will participate in fun, group-bonding activities revolving around Jewish rituals and holiday celebrations. The year will culminate in a creative, student-led group service and celebration, marking this milestone together with family and friends.
