Bar/Bat Mitzvah – Amitim (6th and 7th Grades)

We are thrilled you are considering our Amitim program for your child(ren)! This is a two-year Jewish-life training program. While building this community cohort, students will learn the meanings of and how to lead prayers for Shabbat morning, Jewish traditions and Jewish values for making life choices. Some students will learn trope (how to chant Torah). The program includes meetings with the Rabbi to plan one’s B’nei Mitzvah ceremony and to write the student’s drash. 

We look forward to this program meeting once again in person this fall. 

In order to celebrate a bar/bat/b mitzvah at Congregation Netivot Shalom, one must be halachically Jewish, as defined by the Conservative Movement (meaning born to a Jewish mother or converted) and must be a current member of the congregation.

Amitim meets on Tuesdays 4:30-6:30 (except for holidays), beginning on August 24, 2021 and concluding on May 24, 2022. The second year of the program will conclude in May 2023.

In addition to our Tuesday classes, Amitim students join together for Torah study throughout the year and will have a special track for the High Holy Days and Amitim holiday celebrations.
