B’nai Mitzvah

Approximately 10 months before your child’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah they will begin meeting one-on-one with a wonderful Bar/Bat Mitzvah tutor, as well as with Rabbi Alex. Our students love meeting with Rabbi Alex because he is so personable, fun and relatable to the students. This will be a wonderful time of preparation, as your child gets ready for this most special event in their lives.
