At Micah becoming a bar or bat mitzvah is about stepping up and taking their place with greater responsibility in the Jewish community. We celebrate this coming of age milestone together during Shabbat morning services.
The students read Torah, Haftarah, and offer their thoughts and reflections on their Torah portion. This process requires several years of study and participation in our congregation. We also encourage parents to be actively involved in their children’s b’nai mitzvah preparation, including attending services regularly, so that they become fully familiar with Shabbat traditions.
The students meet with our rabbis to discuss their Torah portions and pose a question to a rabbi. Instead of a traditional sermon, a rabbi will address their question during the service.
Families of b’nai mitzvah students must be a part of the Micah community for at least one year before we can offer a b’nai mitzvah date.
