The Bar/Bat Mitzvah is a community celebration, as we welcome the young person into the Dorshei Tzedek community as a Jewish adult—to be counted in our minyan for prayer, and to be called upon to read Torah and take on other responsibilities.
The young person’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah is an opportunity for the whole community to celebrate each individual child.
Our services are intimate, meaningful and spirited, filled with music and inspiring teachings. The young person leads the service, chants the Torah and Haftorah, gives a d’var torah, and the community kvells. We hope that this ceremony becomes a gateway to the young person’s involvement in the life of the congregation in new ways.
For more information, see our B’nei Mitzvah Family Guidelines (comprehensive overview).
For members, we have also prepared detailed documents on logistics and other guidelines.
