B'nai Mitzvah

A Bar or Bat Mitzvah ceremony marks an important step in the spiritual and communal development of a Jewish child. The ritual, which typically takes place at age 13, challenges Jewish children to examine the ways in which Judaism can shape their lives by engaging in acts of worship, Torah study, and Tikkun Olam (Changing the World), opening their eyes to the possibilities of lives filled with Jewish community, Jewish learning, and Jewish living.
