Do you have a girl or a boy coming of age?  The Bat/Bar Mitzvah ceremony celebrates the beginning of Jewish adulthood within the Jewish Community. Girls and boys celebrate their becoming a Bat/Bar Mitzvah by leading parts of the Shabbat morning services, chanting Torah and Haftarah and the accompanying blessings, and giving a talk on their Torah portion and their Bat/Bar Mitvah projects.

Jewish Journeys Pre B’nei Mitzvah Program

Jewish Journeys meets on Tuesday evenings from 6:00-8:00pm, beginning with dinner (usually pizza and drinks).  Throughout the year, we will have special guests from the community who will speak to the students, in addition to trips to Jewish sites around Montreal.

In order to make the program meaningful and enjoyable for a diverse group of students with various knowledge levels and backgrounds, the program will be a mix of informal learning, youth group style programming, field trips and family activities.    Hebrew reading tutoring can be arranged. We will work to ensure that both day school students and beginners will find the program worthwhile.

The program will begin and end with a family Shabbaton which will begin on Saturday afternoon at the synagogue.  This is an opportunity for parents and families to get to know each other and for students to continue to explore their Jewish identity and the B’Nai Mitzvah process. 


17 Tuesday evening sessions,  4 Shabbat mornings, 2 Shabbatons, and 1 Friday night Kabbalat Shabbat potluck.
