B'nai Mitzvah Central

This section is designed to guide your access to information already shared with our B’nai Mitzvah families at the classes and meetings you have with our clergy, professional tutors and our staff. B’nai Mitzvah Central may serve as a quick reference for most everything having to do with your child’s Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah. However, nothing serves as a substitute for these personal encounters throughout the 18-24 months culminating with a Bar/Bat Mitzvah Service. Please do not hesitate to contact one of us with questions or concerns.
