      Welcome to this wonderful time in your lives! Becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah is a spiritual rite of passage, a significant achievement in the life of a thirteen year old, as well as the life of his or her family.

Bar/Bat Mitzvah’s meaning will endure only if it leads to further Jewish growth and study. Becoming Bar/Bat Mitzvah is a process that can remain with us throughout our lives.
