Bar/Bat Mitzvah

Ages 12-13, once a week. The transition from child to teenager is an important milestone in a child's life.

Prepare your child for the most important day of young adulthood. Give your child the tools he or she needs to properly navigate life as a responsible Jewish adult.

Every girl and boy who celebrates their Bat or Bar Mitzvah with Chabad of West Boynton receives a minimum of 15 private sessions with the Rabbi or Rebbitzin in order to make sure that she or he is 100% ready to be a star on the big day.   Children are able to discuss both the meaning and practical aspects of the Bar or Bat Mitzvah and have their questions answered and explored.

During these sessions boys are prepared for their Torah reading, including the Berachot, Maftir, and Haftorah.  Girls are prepared for their Hebrew-English reading of the Aishet Chayil, Tehilim, and Thirteen Principles of Faith.  In addition, girls will be guided in the performance of the special Mitzvot of Shabbat Candles and Challah, and boys will be guided in the performance of the special Mitzvot of Tefilin and Kiddush.

Last but not least, the Rabbi remains in touch with parents to help guide them through the preparation for the Bar or Bat Mitzvah in the easiest and most enjoyable way.  Together, Rabbi and family explore issues such as, “who is more nervous parents or child,” and “do we invite 3rd cousin once removed, Ernie?"
