The celebration of your child’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah is an important time in the life of your child, your family and our community.  We, at Congregation Beth Shalom, want to make sure that the Bar or Bat Mitzvah celebration is both unique and meaningful. In order to accomplish this goal, our emphasis is on training, preparation and enjoying the holiness of the experience, rather than on performance and show.

The information on our website should be very helpful to you in understanding what the Bar or Bat Mitzvah experience really is and how we celebrate it the way we do at Beth Shalom.
