Bar Mitzvah Preparation

At the Chevra we believe that each child is different, so it’s not a one-size-fits-all Bar Mitzvah program. Working together with the parents, our clergy develops a program that caters to each child, teaching them to conduct prayers, read from the Torah, chant the Haftorah and deliver their own D’var Torah. Parents can participate in the lessons, and are encouraged to speak to their child about the important Jewish meaning of this lifecycle moment.

Bar Mitzvahs can be arranged for Shabbat day, Shabbat Mincha/ Maariv or Monday and Thursday morning.

To prepare your child, please contact Rabbi Jacobson at rabbi@thechevra.ca
