At Chabad we see a Bar/Bat Mitzva as an opportunity for a child to explore and discover what being Jewish really means.
We believe that the most important event in the life of a young person, should be more than just rote memorization leading up to an anxiety-ridden recital of the Torah.
Our emphasis is to foster an awareness that this milestone is only the beginning of Jewish life and help attain a greater appreciation of a Jewish adult's responsibilities.
We can only perform Bar/Bat Mitzva if the natural mother is Jewish or went through an Orthodox conversion. Please contact Rabbi Slavin if you have any questions.
A Bar/Bat Mitzva is an experience that can mold a child, leaving an everlasting imprint on his or her life forever.
during the Hebrew School year, every other Sunday the chidren that will be having a Bar/Bat Mitzvah during that year will have a one 1 hour private class with Rabbi Slavin.
