Becoming b’nei mitzvah at Temple Solel is filled with stimulating classes and tutoring, connection with clergy, and class cohorts. The preparation process is designed to be challenging, but not burdensome; devoted but not by obligation. The preparation leads to a true mastery of Hebraica (decoding and sight-reading of Hebrew) and Judaica (Jewish context and content).
Parents and students are offered great opportunities for meaningful Jewish enrichment – the level of which is meant to create love and intrigue with Judaism for a lifetime. In many Jewish communities, the b’nei mitzvah celebration represents a graduation of sorts. Our approach to b’nei mitzvah at Temple Solel is a bit different. Becoming b’nei mitzvah is a trailhead that leads to a journey of rich, fulsome teen education and community. In other words, after the honor of b’nei mitzvah – a profound spiritual, communal, and educational process truly begins. And, it all leads to a lifetime of enduring Jewish fulfillment.
