Bar/Bat Mitzvah

 

             

 

Temple Beth El’s Accelerated Prep Program is a no-strings-attached course offered to Jewish families who do not want to join a temple but do want to have a Bar or Bat Mitzvah for their child. During this fast-track program teens will learn to read Hebrew in order to read their Torah portion and lead the service. Rabbi Sataloff and Cantor Manny will tutor children one-on-one and custom-tailor the program to fit each child’s needs.  Individual classes will be held for 30 minutes each week. Classes via Skype or FaceTime are available.

In addition to this Accelerated Prep Program, families will be able to have their service officiated by both the Rabbi and the Cantor in Temple Beth El’s beautiful sanctuary. Call the temple office for information (954) 920-8225.

When the special day arrives, the ceremony may be conducted in the beautiful Beth El sanctuary, which combines a contemporary aesthetic with timeless Jewish tradition. Says Cantor Silver, “I’m always moved by the joy and sense of accomplishment and pride my APP students experience with chanting from the Torah and having a real Bar or Bat Mitzvah.” In addition to reading their Torah portion and leading the service, the Rabbi and Cantor acquaint students with rituals, such as the laying (wearing) of tefillin for a complete and well rounded entry into the spirituality of Jewish adulthood. With Temple Beth El’s Accelerated Prep Program, you don’t have to be a member of the temple to come of age as a “member of the tribe.”
